Jim Leyland was ticked last night after Zumaya put three Astros on with walks in the eighth, leading to a blown save and the end of the seven-game winning-streak.
"You've got to throw strikes up here," he said (to the Detroit News.) "I'm tired of looking at walks, and that's everybody. Too many people are walking, too many people."
Ease up, Jim. We're on a streak. There were no walks the night before. Does excoriating them in the paper shame them into not making walks? 'Course, what do I know, I'm unemployed, and when my name was in the paper they were usually quoting me.
Is Leyland a tough boss? I think so, but he hasn't asked me to work for him.
