In Tuesday’s game vs. the Reds, Joey G. benched Jordan Montgomery in the middle of a two-hittter. On Wednesday, the clueless oaf benched Luis Severino in the middle of a three-hitter.
These are no typos. You do not need to consider the score, the situation, or virtuially anything else. When a pitcher is in the middle of a gem, you ride him until he falters. That is common sense.
Yet as we know, Clueless Joey G lacks common sense. The only manager in MLB who benches a pitcher in the middle of a 2-hitter. yes, we won the games. But no thanks to that dolt who calls himself our manager.
Meanwhile, when he’s not screwing up his usage of pitchers, he’s benching near-300 hitter Ronald Torreyes in favor of Tyler .126 Wade. It’s a miracle we’ve been able to scratch our way back into contention with the way Joey G is helping the opponents.
When considering which Yankees are killing their own team the worst lately, it’s hard to choose between Chase Headley or Tyler Clippard.
However, the one thing it’s not hard to choose is who is at fault: As usual, the answer is that clueless dunce who calls himself our manager: The Oaf Joe Girardi.
Ronald Torreyes is approaching a BA of .300, while Chase Headley continues to slide toward .190. And yet the dunce Girardi will not bench Headley. No matter how many rallies he kills, he gets to play.
Tyler Clippard continues to throw BP to the opponents, and Girardi won’t bench him either.
At the same time, when we have the lead in extra innings, the dolt Girardi benches Dellin Betances, in favor of some guy named Giovanni something or other. Needless to say, we lost.
I don’t blame players when they suck. I blame the manager who doesn’t realize it.
On Wednesday, that human piece of garbage, the clueless one himself, Joe Girardi, benched his starting pitcher in the middle of throwing a shutout. Who does that?
On Thursday, the same clueless oaf who calls himself a manager benched Tanaka after giving up only 1 run. He was cruising along beautifully, until Junky Joe decided that the overtaxed bullpen was the way to go.
Note to the blind Girardi: Betances has pitched like crap for a month now. STOP USING HIM.
I wish this were a typo. I wish this surprised me. But it doesn’t. Clueless Joe Girardi has done it again.
He watches his pitcher throw a gem, and then, as usual, he benches him in the middle of it. After checking the stats, I see that NO OTHER MANAGER in MLB this season has benched a pitcher in the middle of a two-hitter.
Only in an upside-world would a manager bench a player in the middle of pitching a gem
Only that over-thinking, unintelligent oaf Joe Girardi would do something so infuriating.
This dolt of a manager goes by the “book,” and he doesn’t watch watch is going on. Either that, or he bet on the Rangers today.
Big league pitchers LOVE being benched in the middle of a game. Not. I’m sure Pineda loves his manager right now and Continue reading
That human piece of garbage Joe Girardi is the only man on the face of the earth who believes that Kirby Yates (Who!!!???) is a better pitcher than Aroldis Chapman.
As soon as the umpires suspended the game Monday night, every Yankee fan knew the outcome.
We didn’t just know that we’d lose; we actually knew how…
Joe Girardi would bench Aroldis Chapman and bring in some ham-and-egger pitcher to blow the save, blow the lead, and blow the game. It was inevitable.
The Girardi defenders will say that Chapman couldn’t pitch after a three-hour delay because his arm was stiff. That’s hogwash, and it’s just an excuse for Girardi’s overmanaging. I’d rather see Chapman pitch with a stiff arm than watch Kirby Yates bean two guys in Continue reading
As many of my readers know, a few years ago I kept begging Joe Girardi to let his team’s leading hitter play.
This was Ichiro Suzuki, who led the Yankees in batting but could not see the field because his manager (Clueless Joey G) thought that other guys were better.
Why should a .300+ batter get to play? Nope, he should ride the bench
As usual, Joe was wrong. It’s not surprising that Joey was wrong. What IS surprising is that Joey’s logic (bench your best hitter) is contagious.
Ichiro is now on the Miami Marlins, where he is again his team’s leading hitter at .317. But his Continue reading
Joe Girardi needs to be fired yesterday. That’s not just an opinion from an angry blogger, but a virtual, provable fact.
Let’s analyze Joey G’s mistakes in Thursday’s game when he handed the Orioles a free victory.
We now live in an upside-down bizarre world where managers bench a guy in the middle of pitching a shutout.
Masahiro Tanaka was on fire. He was in the middle of his best game in years. ZERO runs, only five meaningless hits. 7 Strikeouts.
The Orioles could not handle him. Period. So what did our clueless dolt of a manager do Continue reading
Clueless Joe has got to go.
Clueless Joe Girardi is the only man on earth who thinks that some guy named Garrett Jones is a better baseball player than Alex Rodriguez.
Why else would Giradi bench A-Rod in the middle of a crucial and dramatic extra-innings marathon? The inept and terrible Yankee manager will tell you that he pinch-ran Jones for A-Rod because he wanted more speed on the bases. But that just shows that Girardi has zero comprehension of how the game was already going. This game was destined to be a marathon, and we need A-Rod’s bat, not this Jones guy who no one ever heard of.
We now live in an upside-down bizarre world where managers bench his best players
After Girardi benched A-Rod (who incidentally already had two hits in the game and is off to a hot start), Jones came up in his spot FOUR times. FOUR. That is 4 more at-bats that A-Rod should have had. 4 more chances for him to end the game. Instead, Girardi thought it was Continue reading
2015 began just as 2014 ended, with Brett Gardner’s weak bat killing the team.
Meanwhile, 2014′s leading hitter (Ichiro Suzuki) wasn’t offered an extension. Why would Brian Cashman NOT want to re-sign the Yankee with the highest battting average?
And why does Clueless Joey Girardi allow Gardner to play?
Joe Girardi tried really hard to give away another free win to a Yankee opponent.
Number One, he started Brett Gardner, who promptly rewarded his team with yet another 0-for performance. He’s now down to batting in the .250s. Yet Girardi allows him to play every day.
Number Two, Girardi kept Ichiro on the bench again. Ichiro has Continue reading
