Rich In NJ….I feel the same way…I used to get all riled up, but if the players don’t care, and the manager and front office won’t try something new, like switching up the batting order or bringing up Montero, than why should I care??
Binder Joe’s goal is to have a bench of one player – and a pitching staff of 15, about 12 of whom shouldn’t be in the majors. It’s because his binder has spaces for 15 pitchers, apparently, and he needs to fill them up.
I would watch the Indians throw a perfect game tonight while striking out all 27 batters, winning the game 500-0 over the course of 17 hours, if it meant that Joe Girardi would be fired tomorrow.
After the game, he would likely say something like, “This is all totally normal. These things happen over the course of the season. You get swept twice in a row at home against the Red Sox, looking complacent and disinterested. You lose 500-0. You strike out 27 times in a row. You DO these things. It’s all part of the game, and that’s why I love baseball.
Also, if it’s possible, could one of you beat writers please watch my Yankeeography? The YES Network thought there was a mistake, but we literally got 0 viewers when it made its debut the other night. I can’t believe that no one would watch a Yankeeography about a guy with a .315 career OBP, a career .350 slugging percentage and a total of 2.4 wins generated according to WAR over my 4 years as a Yankee catcher. Not to mention my amazing four years as the manager of this team, where I’ve managed the team in a drunken state since August of last year.”
