Poll: Why is Brett Gardner and his .260 average allowed to play? Why doesn’t Joe Girardi bench him?
Chris Capuano was pitching a gem Monday night, shutting out the Tampa Bay Rays and giving up only two hits. Two.
Every other manager in MLB would leave their pitcher in. But Joey Girardi decided to bench his pitcher. Why on earth would a manger bench a pitcher in the middle of a gem? It’s a question with no answer. But unfortunately, Yankee fans have had to endure this for several years now.
Clueless Joe has got to go.
In the meantime, Brett Gardner had another 0-for, but Giurardi continues to start him AND bat him second. Meanwhile, Ichiro has the Continue reading
It’s getting old, folks.
Clueless Joe Girardi keeps benching his player with the highest batting average (Ichiro) on the team, and the Yankees lose.
He keeps benching pitchers who are doing great. Why take out Kuroda? Why take out Betances?
Why does this bum Girardi still have a job?
Girardi refuses to let his team’s leading batter play (Ichiro Suzuki has the highest average on the team), and the Yankees lose.
Girardi benches David Robertson in the 11th, even though Robertson was pitching excellent ball. And the Yankees lose.
It is sad to see Girardi make these mistakes.
But it is infuriating that he makes the SAME MISTAKES continually. What does Ichiro have to do to get into the lineup?
Every once in a while, we at Yankees truth don’t blame Joe Girardi for a loss.
In Tuesday’s game vs. Tampa, Girardi handled his pitching staff well, which is something he hasn’t done all year. In addition, he allowed his team’s leading hitter to play. Ichiro rewarded him by going 2-for-3 and increased his batting average to nearly .290. Ichiro has the highest average on the team. Period. He should be playing daily and he should be leading off, not batting seventh or eighth.
What say you guys?
As our regular readers know, Joe Girardi is the only manager in baseball history who does not let his team’s leading batter play.
Ichiro has the highest average on the team, but his manager doesn’t let him play.
When Ichiro starts, the Yankees win. He rarely takes a “0-for.” He is feared by opposing pitchers. He is still a great hitter, with an average nearing .300. But his manager prefers to keep him on the bench.
Even when Ichiro contributes to victories, Girardi benches him. Why why why why why? The proof came (again) Wednesday night. Ichiro started; Yankees won. It’s that simple, folks.
Ichiro Suzuki continues to hold the highest batting average on the Yankees. But his manage, Clueless Joey Girardi, refuses to let him play.
Can you name one other manager in baseball history who doesn’t allow his team’s leading hitter to play?
In a Thursday afternoon game, Joey G. made the same two mistakes he makes over and over and over again, and of course it cost the Yankees another victory.
- It’s sad when Girardi makes the same mistakes.
- It’s frustrating that he doesn’t learn from his mistakes.
- It’s infuriating that the Steinbrenner family doesn’t make him pay for his mistakes.
Mistake #1. As usual, Girardi benched a Continue reading
There are two simple reasons that the Yanks are on a hot streak.
1 Girardi allows his starting pitchers to stay in the game: Yankees win.
2 Girardi lets his leading batter (Ichiro) play: Yankees win.
Girardi gets creative and over-manages: Yankees lose. It truly is that simple.
We implore Girardi to keep using the same lineup nightly. It works! Ichiro is quickly approaching a .300 average. All you Yankees Truth haters who say that Ichiro is no longer an everyday player can go jump on the BoSox bandwagon. He has the highest average on the team, whether you like him or not.
In Wednesday night’s loss to the Baltimore Orioles, pitcher Michael Pineda was throwing a gem. Five innings. Only 2 hits. Our starter was throwing a two-hitter. Just in case you didn’t understand, we repeat that our pitcher was in the middle of a two-hitter gem of a game.
So what happened next? His manager benched him.
Clueless Joe’s decisions continue to strike out and give free victories to our opponents.
Clueless Joey G continues to bench players who are playing outstanding baseball. He’s been doing it all year long, and it’s Continue reading
