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.

  • Phil, what's your thoughts on which position players are going to Eugene and who is staying in AZL?

  • Ahhh...way to bring me down BB.

    Still - a win tomorrow will be an acheivement regardless.

  • Don't mean to spoil your mood, but with tonight's win the are 3-5 on the trip with one to play.

    While I'm bringing the room down -- Richard comes in to pitch the 9th with a 12-1 lead...and can't finish the game. Woof.

  • It is remarkable how my mood has become uplifted with one game against the Cards.

    That is sick.

    But, I have been an addict for a long time.

    A W tomorrow and it will be a .500 road trip.

    Also, to keep the losses in perspective, if the Cubs were to lose 10 games a month - a lot at this current pace - they still end up 102-60. Six months of the ride!

  • So, the Mesa Cubs should be solid this summer in the AZL Rookie League?

    And, I like the, "But did you know" lead in there. Something a little different.

    I can tell really like this group of hitters in AZ right now.

    What pitchers out there, other than Cease, should we be excited about?

    Thanks as always for the info.

  • These are the 2016 Cubs I know and love. Also digging that Cardinals OF (lack of) defense.

  • I'm not sure there was another team in baseball that would flip a Dansby Swanson type of prospect (plus Inciarte, plus Toussaint) for Miller.  That trade was just comically bad from the start, and getting worse...

  • Zobrist just keeps squaring up - and Soler goes yard!

  • Pirates jumping all over Shelby Miller tonight - so glad the Cubs didn't flip a Dansby Swanson type prospect to the Braves for him. Two years of Lackey looking like a good alternative.

  • 3rd inning...soler walked twice in the game...first time since aug 4th last year in the regular season (2 times in the playoffs, amazingly).

  • That's a good analogy, bb...  Nice to see tonight's game start with a 104 yard kickoff return TD.

  • Grichuk won the game last night but a decent CF would have caught that drive by Ross. Good Cubbery!
