It's amazing what a team can accomplish if they have three great starters in the rotation. Twins take note. Please.

Boy did Leyland blow this one. I like the guy a lot but the Tigers should have won this series in 4 or 5 games. Why would Jim take out Scherzer {twice}, Verlander and Sanchez with the lead, Knowing that bullpen will bite him eventually. OMG!!

For students of the game, this once again shows how players win games, not managers. Smyly enters, induces a double-play ground ball, Iglesias blows it and the game spirals. Leyland made the right move; the players failed. And keep in mind, baseball is a sequence of events. It's vital to look at the plays that preceded the home run. "The fans," unfortunately, like to skip plays, just like they like to skip years and years when they ask, "Why did the Twins let (insert name here) go?" Because he was hurt four years ago. Or stunk three years ago. But "the fans" like to fast forward to what makes their argument convenient.

I hope all the fans and commentators who tut-tut and wag their fingers at Yasiel Puig got a load of Shane Victorino's showboating around the bases last night. Maybe the Cards' Joe Kelly can find one of Victorino's ribs, or Carlos Beltran can teach him a few manners?

I didn't know the baseball season was still going on. I thought it ended when the Twins stopped playing.

pattyzan is the typical "fan." Doesn't even know what a manager does, so is not qualified to assess blame.
