Leyland: 'We've been shutout for 18 innings, so it's pretty hard to win a game'
Tigers manager Jim Leyland talks about the team's mindset down 3-0 in the World Series, as well as the lack of offense from Detroit.
-- -- -- It's at all reflective of how the series is gone you decide to -- infield then in the second inning you can explain why Ellis yeah -- through in the first inning with a man on third one now. Now explain to use. The new routine almost shorts offers bad guys trots home. If you -- you know -- Russia -- -- and -- your chance Norma -- situation it was all Israel want out these sort of go play in order. What do they do ball where of course on the abuse the guys who -- all. Knowing all the -- in this situation is who -- from that -- rule were drawn in infield assume Wimbledon reaching that situation. Don't know no outs in the world probably at least -- go play. North Koreans who got to go play in order with one out you again uses so. I do you have from first and you know while. -- Jim conduct -- effort Sanchez gave you guys well I thought he was. Probably over compete -- literally. And then he settled in it was absolutely terrific thus -- -- finish voted deserve to be out there -- compete his -- off. He was absolutely tremendous role. You know yet. Tremendous pitching effort but you know we've been shut out for eighteen innings so much for your way to. Who else. Can. And did you. Jimmie just mentioned it two straight shutout what are you seeing from your office for an. Well obviously. So we have Ryan on the ropes a couple times tonight we couldn't get to killer -- and a killer blow. I thought. Throw the British fishermen it was a changeup to bury and have to double play. The development of set up the Mexican veteran bird or -- threw a fastball after the changeover from the back through my movement. Anybody else. Well okay everybody else Mark -- here. Jim is sort of the reverse situation you were the last series what do you tell your team out down 30 office shortly as well you don't live television and all they can count you know we're down three games to zero and you know you don't really there's no. -- -- Secret formula masters form in all there of their big guys and it was a situation is and then they know we have to talk to on if you win a game. But it starts you know you don't -- about a four reasonable one. That's an issue -- and about tonight. -- talk about not getting the base hit can -- Cabrera and -- that are up. With some chances to drive and some guys -- -- to Tigers talk about team they don't talk about individuals obviously a lot of people struggle would only give five original scoring runs. No we don't points and is there anybody in particular we Syria as a team and I we're going to have gone that's where we were seriously to offers that have been here and -- always -- Buster. Jimmie you're always very respectful of the team you're playing how much of it this is then how much do you think it is if you guys. Well I think you look at this other in the first game -- even I mean we're -- -- threes or looks regret. You you know you can't argue that point but if you look I mean. We've got a pretty good -- Pritchard to lose the first game when Justin was a little bit. Frisky look censor a point we've we've I think we've shut them down pretty good to show we pitched pretty good we December they were here on the -- run wise. John Jim how the people factors have been for them to be referring -- command of the game in the sixth inning middle relief what that enough. Well -- obviously there's good you know these these. -- always a good pitcher Newton when he throws a split you know you go look coupled with more than we have because. This normally going to be down real low or remember Michael was a couple times tonight. But in all ministers have been a big time pitcher. Because -- -- -- premiere of weapons formidable for a -- Is there any frustration that an offense that you saw -- struggle during. The regular season but it seemed to come out of it to this past four weeks has reverted back to some earlier form. Well -- we've been really. Hot and cold all your little bit more cold -- hot news Welsh who works Florida Maryland goes in the game against yankees final here against the Yankees when we finally got reported on the board. But you know we've been Slaton all year long and -- are also -- Models and association managers sort of like us or we got a couple shots and Ryan and I. He made it -- big pitches in in big situations -- you know you tip your hat to. I guess that I think he's he's sort of barrier for the next to bed really for anyone trying to we've cinema for the next about the changeup and -- the double play ball. Then the next about it through stressful to shrugs and and to change it was you know probably in the back to mind. Jim when your offense was struggling going to September. You know -- and and some big -- injury. Seemingly get some things going by manufacturing some offense. At this point is or anything you can do as a manager it is try to get things. On that when you know you can try to manufacture a little bit but. You don't really know manufacture a lot with the big guys in the -- left -- went away and also. An omen that I need to be a little more creative. But there's a reason we talk about us we don't talk about individuals so. -- of the team you know as manager coaches the team we ocean go do a little bit better. One less question. Mark was one. -- -- talk about a team not individuals that Cabrera at bat with the bases loaded is that. How deflating is that you know Parcells went up all of the slave owners -- investors baseball you know looked like he. Climb the ladder a little bit and sometimes a sufficient you do pop up that he made a big picture of big time. I mean. Shoot you know where a couple want that taken away from -- great. We go Cabrera is like this are we have other opportunities. -- going to go we just didn't get the big that we have a chance -- a couple of chances. You know we just didn't catch him up.
