That makes Joe using Phil in the 9th tonight REALLY stupid, given that Mo will not be available for a few days…….wow, talk about asinine. He could have saved Phil’s arm tonight so he could be used tomorrow…..
I was ok with Phil in the 9th because he needs the work, but there really is no excuse for him pitching if he’s going to have to cover for Mo……….I shudder to think who will be closing games when Phil is not available.
Okay I am going to award prizes for anyone/everyone who ends up being correct in the 2009 Yankee Wins Prediction Chart. I guess the prize will be a pound of salt water taffy for each person who wins. If someone guesses who is double-asterisked (guessed after 7-29) well they only get 3/4 of a pound!
Girardi has a lot more faith in Mitre than any of us, that’s known. What if Mitre continues to pitch very well and Joba continues to struggle? Girardi’s statement about “catching lightning in a bottle” suggests he has an open mind about who and how he is going to use his players.
