I phrased that wrong. The Tiger roster has talent. They are just playing sucky.
Changes at top will be likely if Tigers don't start hitting | detnews.com | The Detroit News
Talked about firing Leyland DURING the season...It's starting....
JLey was saying they were undisciplined at the plate, just swinging away. BS they just can't hit.
Tigers on a 2-game winning streak. Playoff tickets go on sale next week.
The sky WAS falling in!
Hey ! A little love for Verlanders second no-no ! Course we score 9 runs, 4 more than we needed.
If the Jays scored 0 runs, how many did we need?
I figure at least 5 this year....
nothing less than 5
game in game out
Grey eye, Brown eye Sherzer is 6-0 !!!
Lineup is better with Austin coming around.
This is what I mean...the team's got talent, so the manager must go if they don't produce results.
.500 ball just doesn't cut it for me....not with this group.
The Tigers have won 6 out of 7 and now you want to fire the manager?
I've set very high expectations for the team this season and they don't include playing .500 ball. It's a long season and if he doesn't get off the .500 mark by the all-star break...then yes...I want him fired....
Still no excuse for that 7 game losing streak at the end of April....the next time he allows this team to get swept in two straight series he should be gonner....even if they are in first place...
Fine Nems, who is there better ?
He surely coddled these guys while they batted sand.
I don't think Leyland managed much differently in the win streak than he did in the loss streak.
Is that a good thing?
Yea, a manager has to send a consistent message over a 162-game season. Leyland stays positive through the tough times and doesn't get too excited through the good times (or anytime, actually).
Perhaps there is a better manager out there for the Tigers. Who knows? If so, the Tigers may win another game or two over the course of the season. Ultimately, the players have to show up.
Ultimately the manager needs to know when to bench a guy or 3 and get some production. Or yank a pitcher throwing grapefruits. Or sit down on an ump squeezing our strike zone.
Billy Martin coulda won 95 with these guys.....
