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.
