Today the Tigers had a 4-1 lead in bottom of the 8th with 1 out. Ryan Perry proceeded to give up a single, homerun, single, double (about 2 ft from a HR), and a single before Leyland decided to pull the plug. At this point we were already down 5-4, which turned out to be the final. Mind you Zumaya and Coke were both warming up before the HR, and coke came in to get two quick outs right after this.
What are everyone's feelings on Leyland? I gave myself a cool down period before posting this, but am still pissed about it. I've been strongly against Leyland's in game managing for a long time now and he continues to do things that are so incomprehensibly dumb IMO.
Last year in the play-in game vs the twins he put in miner, who got lit up in close games all season, when we had a lead late in the game. Everyone around me hated the decision and Miner proceeded to blow the game. There are a plethora of other things he does and has done that bother me, and I just wanted to know what the general opinion on him is from most tigers fan. Personally, I would love to see us bring in someone else, but what does everyone think?
