Postseason Managerial Records
I was curious, so I figured some of you may be as well...
|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. 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|
|F. Gonzalez||0-1||.000||Lost 1 game WC in '12|
(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.
Joe: "We lost. They beat us. Now where's my '09 Guigal Bordeaux glass...?
I forgot how rail thin skinny Carl Edwards Jr. Is - he threw some nasty stuff - hope that continues
HAHAHA! I love it here! Brilliant...
"The pressure of going for the regular-season wins record is now gone."
Brilliant. Maddon is a genius!
"Drink copiously but responsibly."
Done and done. Thanks for that.
Oil Can Boyd now pitching for the Cubs
- The pressure of going for the regular-season wins record is now gone.
- Joe will come up with more wacky dress-up ideas for the team to wear after they lose their next get-away game.
- There is more clarity on Spencer Patton.
- We play the Reds next. They aren't very good.
- We'll have at least a 9 game lead after today.
Other than that, not much -- nasty stretch. Two ugly losses in the last 4 games.
Ugh -- give Lackey a 4-1 lead, you hope for better.
It's a long season. There will be stretches like this. It's Saturday night. Drink copiously but responsibly.
That valuable RBIGIDP.
Someone talk me down here.
I remember AZ PHIL talking about Bour's power during the Hendry era.
Time to scrap the scouting report on Justin Bour and get a new one. Sheesh.
Contreras seems pretty adamant he'll play anywhere Madden wants him to so as long as he stays hot and with all the injuries it'll be pretty nice to have yet another bat Madden can move around.
Rizzo in, Zobrist out, Willson in LF, Montero back and Almora batting 9th ... let's score some runs
Time for Mr. Oh to get some save chances.
Rosenthal does it again! Comes in with a 3-1 lead in the 9th -- double, BB, HR...ballgame.
Very nice win last nice -- could have caved in after the bottom of the first. It would be OK if guys stopped getting hurt, and if SF would lose a few.
