I should say his pitcher. Pineda, despite not having his best stuff, kept the punchless Yankees in the game. Then Girardi overworked him and, eventually, the Royals humiliated him. Nice work Joe. The worst job of managing a pitching resource since Torre destroyed Scott Proctor and a number of relievers.
And Coney was right. That 6th inning was the Yankees' worst inning of the season. Defense, strategy, execution, player management; everything was bush league, if that. I think Girardi should be fired. All of a sudden, I am realizing how terrible he is.
And here is the most embarrassing thing of all. Did any of you note the single to right field with runners on second and third during that horrendous 6th inning? The ball was fielded by Beltran ( I think it was Beltran ) about 25 yards beyond the infield, on one hop. Paul O'neil wiould have thrown out the runner from second by 20 feet. Beltran ( I think it was Beltran ) showed the weakest arm I have seen since elementary school.
His throw ( I think it was Beltran ) started bouncing on the infield grass about five feet from the home plate side of the infield, and took about six hops before rolling meekly into the catchers' glove. By this time, the donkey in the pasture would have scored.
Seriously, whoever threw it ( I think it was Beltran ) cannot be allowed to play in the major leagues. I promise you; I had a better arm in the 8th grade than whoever was playing right field ( I am pretty sure it was Beltran ).
We can't do this. And Girardi put him out there.
It is time to wake up and do something. Bring up Heathcott and let Beltran cash his checks in an old folks home. Show some courage. Some integrity. Don't just sit there and let this idiot ruin us.
I think it was Beltran. I know it wasn't number 24. But it could have been that other useless Yankee, Jones.
It is not acceptable to have an incompetent, 8th grader playing for the Yankees.
What a joke. What a study in useless management and futility. I hope Hal chokes on his fucking steak.
