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.
