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.
there was more than one way to get there
supposedly jed "who?" hoyer, too
same...i just happen to not like sitting through shit sandwich meals for multiple years. baseball is kinda boring when you're punting on 1st down for a slew of years in a row.
i fully understand why it was done, but i didn't enjoy it. there was more than one way to get competitive and this was the chosen way.
fwiw, apparently McLeod signed extension as well after he didn't get Twins gig.
I am once again reminded why I am happy that Theo is running the organization.
if not they can just intentionally tank the team for 3-4 years and rebuild.
Hopefully after the Cubs complete their sevenpeat :)
They're the best in the business and have been for 12 years running now. The only question is when they'll get bored of it.
I was right here. I don't require my GM's to be perfect, but I would like them to understand what wins baseball games (IMO controlling the strike zone and creating/avoiding outs), and knowing where the organization is in the success cycle.
Theo and company have made and will make plenty of mistakes, but they seem to understand those two items pretty well.
Now we're all Theo-believers, where were you when he signed Edwin Jackson? Or how about trading away DJ Lemehaiu? And not signing Samardzija to an extension? Or not pursuing Prince Fielder or Albert Pujols? Or signing Lester? Or trading away Cashner, Dempster, Feldman, etc?...I think I'm losing the narrative here.
So his deal runs through 2021? Which pretty much coincides when all these guys are due to hit free agency.
"Terms of the deal were not disclosed."
Theo inks five year extension

Not as a major factor, but could be a tie-breaker. But, yeah, on performance and experience, it's Coghlan.
Arrieta’s 2.85 ERA would be good enough to lead 26 other teams. He's 3rd on #Cubs behind Hendricks (1.99) and Lester (2.28)
