The Angels had 2 outs in the bottom of the 8th and had Troy Percival (40 saves, 1.92 ERA!) - ready to enter the game. Percival is an all-time great closer and they didn't use him. Remember when the Padres had Trever Hoffman against the Yankees in the World Series, and never got to use him. Why would you not use your best pitcher? Instead they went with their no-name bullpen and got bombed. At least Joe Torre is smart enough to bring in Rivera. Promote this thread!

As fars a Manager of the Year, it has to be either Scioscia or Gardenhire. They did so much more with less than anybody else.

As far as AL MOY - Scioscia or Gardenhire are nifty choices. You can't go wrong with either, in my book. And Hoffman WAS used in the 98 Series. Brosius took him deep in Game 3.

AIM: # 5 Posted on 2.10.02 1905.25 Reposted on: 2.10.09 1906.18 Ron Gardenhire should be a slam dunk for AL Manager of the Year. I don't see how Mike Scioscia can even compare. (GO M'S! 2003! FUCK THE ANGELS!) But I'm not biased. :D

Giambi 0-5 with 5 strikeouts lifetime against Troy Percival. You can't save your best pitcher for a time that may never arrive. You must use him when the game is on the line.
