Postseason Managerial Records

I was curious, so I figured some of you may be as well...

Manager W-L % Series Records
C. Hurdle 8-4 .667 2-1 and 1 game WC win in '13
T. Francona 28-18 .609 7-3 and 1 game WC loss in '13
M. Matheny 7-6 .538 1-1 and 1 game WC win in '12
J. Leyland 39-34 .534 8-6
J. Maddon 12-14 .462 2-3 and 1 game WC win in '13
D. Baker 19-26 .422 3-6 and 1 game WC loss in '13
B. Melvin 5-7 .417 1-2
F. Gonzalez 0-1 .000 Lost 1 game WC in '12
D. Mattingly N/A    
J. Farrell N/A    

(UPDATED after the Rays and Indians game)

While technically not playoff games, a few managers were involved in tiebreaker games, i.e Game 163 and they went as so:

D. Baker's Giants in '98 lost to the Cubs at Wrigley

C. Hurdle's Rockies in '07 beat the Padres at Coors

J. Leyland's Tigers in '09 lost to the Twins at the Metrodome

J. Maddon's Rays in '13 beat the Rangers at the Ballpark in Arlington.

There's really little point in trying to assign any value to any of that, although to maybe point and laugh at Dusty's record.

Trade Rumor dude says agents he spoke to believe Cubs will spend FA money on a catcher this offseason. I think the agents are just hoping that's the case. The big names out there are McCann, Saltalamacchia and Flores. My guess from a month ago was if they do go after anyone it would be Saltalamacchia.

they pretty much have to sign a C given the crap options they have that are MLB ready that can actually produce...dunno about a big name, though.

Couldn't the Cubs still use the Welington Castillo/Dioner Navarro situation again?

Agreed. I'll take those two any day. Might be speculation that they cannot afford to resign Navarro? Or that he wants to be a #1? I want to keep him but we'll see.

Might be speculation that they cannot afford to resign Navarro?

Salty will cost more than DN. I don't get the speculation either.

  • Kershaw, Fernandez and Syndergaard are your current leaders and all will be pitching meaningful games down the stretch that could make or break them. Hendricks will not be and his saber-numbers aren't anywhere close to those 3 and he'd split votes with Arrieta and Lester whom all are basically neck-and-neck for  WAR and FIP. If Kershaw pitches like just okay Kershaw in September he deserves to win in a landslide. Voters are pretty much saber-inclined now so it would take a crazy shutout streak or something for Hendricks to jump in the picture.

  • AZ PHIL: With starters the likes of Edwin Jackson, even Chris Rusin or Michael Bowden could look good on their staff. At best, he is a #5-6. But as always, LH are at a premium.

  • Sure we would all want consistency. He is not even 24, has played 5 (!) positions this year. Can you imagine what is in his head? He was only a part-time player at 2 spots last year. And THEN think about hitting?? Cut him some slack...You sure are picky lately. First wishing #6 NL RBI guy Russell have a better average, and now an "unncessarily fancy pick". Geez tough crowd!

  • it's going to be hard to take down scherzer.

    kershaw is supposedly coming back soon, though he'll probably need a good amount of deep innings to match up with scherzer...probably too late at this point. tanner roark, bumgarner, and hendricks are probably going to steal some votes along with kershaw.

  • I absolutely love Javy's game, and I love the way Maddon changed the perception of him as a ballplayer, but I really wish he would just make the routine plays routinely. On the ground ball in the 9th, he made an unnecessarily fancy pick. He made the play, but tried the same thing last night and made an error.

  • How many wins does Kyle need for serious Cy Young consideration? Would 17 be enough if he leads the league in ERA? My goodness, what a season -- makes a Dartmouth alum proud.

  • Whoops. Maddon must have been reading TCR (for his daily crunch) and got confused.

  • kuhl is a righty, not a lefty.

    i think maddon might think kuhl is a lefty, too. i wonder what the reasoning is for baez leading off vs a rightie.
