Most teams would kill for a .371 batter. Joe Girardi thinks that a .371 hitter should be a benchwarmer.
In another baffling managerial decision, Joey G. has benched Ichiro for tonight’s Sock game. The Yankees are riding a great 7-3 run right now because Ichiro has been in the line-up. He is red hot, and got two more hits yet again last night. How does Joey G. handle this? What is Ichiro’s reward for being on fire? He gets to sit the bench.
The Steinbrenner family needs to demand an answer of Girardi.
