    I’d also point out that far as I can recall he doesn’t make a ton of boneheaded plays like that in the postseason.

    *Dumbest

    A lot of his outs on the basepaths are just lack of awareness...

    I would cut a little bit of slack if Altuve was the road player playing at MMP hitting the ball to LF to go for a double.

    But his home ballpark is MMP and should know better...

    Go look at baseball history books, there are many they are considered very good managers that have not won a WS. Actually, you can look how FEW managers have actually made it to the World Series. https://www.baseball-reference.com/bullpen/World_Series_Records_of_Managers

    You cannot discount that Dusty has a winning record as a manager, has won 2000+ games, and made it to multiple WS.

    Um, he out-coach the Twins, A's in 2020...almost came back again the Rays with a bunch of young pitchers and no Alvarez.
    2021 he pieced together a starting rotation with no Verlander or McCullers to get the WS. He out-mangaged LaRussa ( A World Series winning manager) and Cora (a World Series winning manager) to get to the WS.

    I have 0 problem with Tuve, but I have problem with weak at-bats by Yuli.

    The pitch calling on Trout is borderline disrespectful at this point

    Trout has stretches where he looks astoundingly bad for one of the greatest players ever.

    Head's up by Maldy.

    In my entire life I don't think I have ever seen that.

    Great play by Maldy!

    But wtf by the Angels 1B Coach for not telling Ward about Maldy coming up behind him?!
