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?
