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.

  • OK Marlins -- take 'em down. Fernandez, at home, tomorrow for the Fish.

    Gotta say, though -- as much as I can't stand them, the Cardinals have had some very impressive late-inning wins against premier closers.

  • Very impressive that he hit a 3-2 curve ball. Such a dynamic ballplayer. If he ever learns the strike zone....

  • Got to admit it - it was comforting seeing Rondon come out for the eighth after just taking a two run lead ... And put the hammer down with a 7 pitch inning. Good stuff
