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.
JD's take was just trying to get in a lefty to better deal with mostly lefty Dodgers lineup.
Maybe he was trying to spare him another brutal road start? NY, Colorado...
joe got a pitcher up for hammel at nearly the 1st sign of trouble in the 3rd...pulled after 2.1
not injured and though it wasn't his day so far he wasn't looking like a pure disaster.
really short leash on him. zastryznzryzryny in.
Classic Scully - great stuff.
Thank God we'll still have Hawk next season. (cricket cricket cricket)
Here's Scully's call on Bryant's 10th-inning homer:
"And it's a long fly ball, a mean fly ball, and a gone fly ball."
When the Cubs were the old, hundred-year Cubs, one bad hop did not undo their opponents.
If only he was clutcher. More clutcher.
cubs win...bryant with 7HR in his last 8 games.
bryant 2nd HR of the night for a 2 run lead in the 10th? sure, why not. awesome.
gawd...jansen's thrown 5 pitches in the past 5 minutes.
wild pitch (and a K, boo) with heyward advancing! 1 out, heyward on 3rd.
HEYWARD SCORES ON A 2nd WILD PITCH! TIE!
leadoff double (heyward!) top of the 9th...RALLY!
carlos ruiz is still coming up to "in the air tonight" by phil 'are you kidding me' collins in LA.
many years ago before phil collins it was a soulja boy song.
dude has odd taste in music. at least it's not yanni...i guess.
Funniest skybox ever
Schwarber is worse right?
