Oh, for fuck’s sake. The better team won. It’s hilarious how every move the manager didn’t make is a strike out or home run.
Ramirez with that beautiful stroke to the opposite field in the ninth. A runner tagging from first base on a routine fly to right.Situational hitting, defense, managing.
That's not a bad perspective to have. I'd even go as far to say that's the healthy perspective.I look at it differently. I don't think he's particularly good, but he had one hell of a heater to stem the tide most of the way until Duval returns.
If you have a generational talent team, it's hard to make bad looking moves.Yeah absolutely nothing to do with the lack of talent that he’s dealing with.

“He did it for a reason.”
Biggest problem was only getting one inning out of Kluber in the first game, which meant that the bullpen really got taxed for game two.Cora definitely wasn't an asset tonight, though.
Especially in a tie game. To me, that was the biggest problem with the Jansen move.If you have a generational talent team, it's hard to make bad looking moves.
If you have a normal team, you have to make smart moves to maximize their talent.
When it comes to that, Cora's not the worst manager in the league, but he's not very good either. Jansen should not have been out there twice today.
