Ok... So, i've said time and time again that i love leyland as a Manager. However, last night was awful decision after awful decision beginning in the bottom of the 8th. We all know what happened, but the decision on which pitchers to use was just awful. I've read today that Scherzer said he was done, and when a pitcher says that, you have to make a change. He's pitched masterfully over the season, and that game, but after 108 pitches, if the guys says he's done, he's done. Verlander did the same thing in Game 5 of the series against the A's.
So, for that game, i'm with the guys on here that give Leyland a hard time. Thought it was just awful the way the 8th inning was managed from a pitching standpoint.
But, what can the Tigers say for themselves? They have a split going into three games at home with Verlander, Fister and Sanchez going. That sets up Scherzer for a game 6 and Verlander for Game 7, if necessary.
