My fantasy team thanks him for saving this until the postseason. Jerk.


In the past he'd been money in the regular season but less than stellar in the postseason. This year he's flipped the script. Unfortunately for him the Tigers have stopped hitting.

Leyland decided to go to J-Truth with the bases loaded and 1 out in the 7th. We all knew that was going to end badly.

A lot of people are speculating that Lloyd McClendon will be the new Tigers manager.

No one really credible, but a twitter seach of "Lloyd McClendon" is pretty entertaining right now.

Leyland is likely to push for the job to go to either Lloyd McClendon or Gene Lamont, two former managers who have been on his Tigers coaching staff for his entire eight-year run.


I don't hate the Tigers enough to wish either of those two on Detroit.

Calling Lloyd and Gene Lamont "two former managers" without qualifying that statement by mentioning they managed the pirates is like calling Jeff Sklling and Barry Madoff business executives without mentioning the massive frauds they perpetrated.

Excellent analogy. Lamont melted the arms of Benson, Cordova and Schmidt because he had no idea that perhaps young pitchers should be protected. As for Lloyd, the 9th innings of these two games that are eternally burned into my memory sums everything up:

http://www.retrosheet.org/boxesetc/2005 ... IT2005.htm
http://www.retrosheet.org/boxesetc/2005 ... IT2005.htm

In the first game, he didn't intentionally walk a scorching-hot Derrek Lee because Lee was the righty and he didn't want the lefty Burnitz facing the righty Mesa. In the second he intentionally walks Corey f'ing Patterson to set up a lefty/righty matchup that didn't materialize because the Cubs used the pinch-hitter they were always going to use.
