Wash will be an interesting case. He gets a lot out of the players as players, but he doesn't put those players in good situations to win.
I really think this game was lost in Game 6 last year - they still haven't recovered.
Indeed. Their time was last year. They were arguably better than the Giants too.
Wash is a solid manager of people, but his strategy is always off.
It has to be hard as a franchise on the move to be one strike away twice and not get it done.
Their time may come later with a different staff. A lot of talent and money in that franchise.
