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.

been like that everytime I've been there too including Jack Murphy/Qualcomm Stadium. Cubs travel well. It was pretty loud for Angels/Cubs this year and decent for Dodgers/Cubs but Dodger fans definitely turn out better than the Padre fans.
When I went in the 2007-2008 range, it was at least 75% Cubs fans.
Jeff Sullivan on Kris Bryant's lack of clutch hitting in 2016. Very good stuff, unsatisfying conclusion (it's probably random).
I was at Tuesday's game in San Diego. It looked like half of Chicago was at Petco. We were much louder than Padres fans.
We may have a chance to catch one in October. Although hell, I couldn't deal with my co-workers if we lose to them.
think I have to miss this series too (also was at the Arrieta game last year). But in my case, just had a busy weekend with work and kids have a bunch of activities and we made it to Opening Day in Anaheim and a couple of games in Wrigley this year which we normally don't get too...so not feeling like I'm missing out this year.
I hope the Cubs play three good teams.
First year I'm not going to a Cubs/Dodgers game in a long time. 4 month old baby kinda changes plans around. But the no-hitter I was at last year can last in the memory banks for awhile.
I think Dodger Dogs are awful. I love hot dogs, but those are crap.
ayyyy...get a doyer dog, then.
I'm going to be at this one! Am told a Dodger Dog is just a long hot dog. Disappointing.
If my math is correct, if the Cubs play .500 baseball for the rest of the season, they will finish with 99 wins. I only just confirmed through Baseball Reference that 97 wins last year (and 2008) were the most Cubs wins in my lifetime. I think that last year while Arrieta was pitching better than Cy F. Young I didn't really get or appreciate what he was doing. I'm trying to try to grasp in the moment just how fucking remarkable this season is.
This is awesome.
(CSN Chicago will air Vin Scully's call of the Sunday Cubs vs. Dodgers game...well for an inning at least)
I figured this was going to be the most meaningless regular season in Cubs history...and it is pretty much on point, although I certainly didn't think we'd have close to a 14 game lead.
But, one bad hop in game 1 in October could change absolutely everything we will remember about this year.
