So playoff Tito is dead right? About to lose 6 straight elimination games, Farrell would have been strung up if he did that.
It's not just losing. His team looked tight and unprepared. Their at bats were undisciplined. And he keeps starting guys on short rest, and it keeps failing. Maybe change your strategy?

I still really love Tito, but even during the magical 2004 run he made a couple of decisions that would have been rightfully criticized for years had they not won. One example was letting Varitek catch Wakefield in extras while passed balls were going to the backstop with every other pitch. That easily could have lost the game. Varitek had already played a ton of innings and wasn't likely to be the offensive difference-maker, and it was pretty much the only reason Mirabelli was on the team. Still can't believe Wake struck out Sierra on that 3-2 pitch.

On that topic, it is nice how 2004 will always, always, make everything else that ever happens in the world of baseball tolerable, even when it sucks, like this.
I often youtube "4 days in October" when I'm feeling down about baseball...

That's actually all kinds of awesome truth be told.

Stew on that for awhile Farell haters/Francona ballwashers.

Last year's Cleveland team was missing two key pitchers and a key every day player. Tito managed circles around Maddon, final outcome notwithstanding

Damn, that 1-2 pitch was quite hittable. At least for Chapman's speed it was.

Mfy fans are ALWAYS parodies of themselves. It's unreal.
I was just thinking that when they showed them in the stands. It's really incredible...reminded me of that 2009 rightfield shitshow in the toilet.

They have played very well the last month of the season. It’s all about momentum.

I can't believe Tito choked away a 2-0 series lead.

There continue to be so many guys who improve once in pinstripes. They must have that strength training program up and running again
