This game isn't over yet, it's tied 0-0 in the top of the 10th right now, but Joe Girardi has done everything in his power to blow it for the Yanks and I just had to break my silence to vent about the moronic actions of our diminutive manager.
Bullets should do:
- First and second, no one out in a tie game. Melky Cabrera at the plate, Girardi takes off the bunt after the first pitch. Melky hits into a double play with Jeter on deck.
- Matsui on first, one out, Cano at the plate, full count. Girardi sends Matsui, who runs into the strike-em-out-throw-em-out double play
- Phil Hughes comes in to finish off the top of the eighth inning on 5 pitches. The Yanks fail to score in the bottom of the 8th. Instead of sending Hughes back out for the top of the ninth, effectively extending the best part of the bullpen deeper into the game, Girardi instead calls on Mo for the 9th. Now we get Aceves in the 10th.
Ridiculous, unimaginable decisions by a guy who is so clearly over his head it isn't even funny. If the Yanks win this game it will be despite the choke job by their manager. He is not fit to manage this team, it's like having a fat guy riding a thoroughbred in the Kentucky Derby.
