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 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 will give him a superb effort next time. Not.
