Girardi Causes Another Loss as Yankees Fall to White Sox

Jacoby Ellsbury, Brett Gardner, and Alfonso Soriano struck out 7 times among them last night.

Joe Girardi is the only man on earth who thinks Afredo Aceves is a major league pitcher.

Ichiro had another perfect night, including a clutch pinch hit in the ninth inning.  Despite that, Joe Girardi continues to sit Ichiro on the bench.What does Ichiro have to do to get in the lineup regularly?

He’s hitting .370, and apparently that isn’t good enough for Clueless Joey G.  Ichiro’s clutch hit in the ninth inning?  Meaningless to Clueless Joe.   It is shameful for us fans to have to watch our best hitter ride the bench each night because of Girardi’s hunches.

But Girardi’s mis-use of Ichiro wasn’t his biggest mistake of the night.  No, the biggest mistake was that Girardi put Aceves into a game again.  Phelps gave up two runs.  Yanks scored two. Techincally, Phelps gets the loss, but it was Aceves who gave up the winning run.

One inning.  Two hits. A walk.  He faced 6 batters and half of them reached.  Pathetic.  Everyone knows he costs us games.  Everyone, that is, except Girardi.

One thought on “Girardi Causes Another Loss as Yankees Fall to White Sox”

  1. I don’t see how Joe’s to blame for this one. I agree with sitting Ichiro against Sale, he’s not easy to hit as a lefty, although with Soriano and Ellsbury both struggling I would like to see him playing regularly. And Aceves has calmed himself down and has been pitching much better recently, so I think I agree with putting him nin that game, especially seeing as he was less worked than the rest of the bullpen. I don’t like Aceves just as much as you, and I think there’s definitely room for improvement in his roster spot, but I feel like he’s been doing better than you give him credit for, especially as of late.
