Daddy, while you are splaining things to me, could you please help me understand how batting Ellsbury 5th in the line-up is a smart thing? The headlines say he was "dropped" to 5th. To my way of thinking, the guy who hits 5th had better be . . . a clutch hitter. Productive. Maybe hit a few HRs here and there.

I'm not over-analyzing it. I'm trying to forget it. But every time it wanders back into my brain, I keep thinking: My team is Giving Up before anyone fires a shot.

Also, the reports I saw on this praised Girardi for "breaking up" the 2 lefties at the top of the order, thus making it difficult for other teams to bring in a lefty pitcher in relief to stymie Gardy and Ells. OK. If that's a brilliant move, HOW DUMB WAS IT to leave these two guys in tandem for all of 2016? Just asking.

Joe, you ask deep and unanswerable questions whose answers can only be found in the mystical pages of the Binders. We are not privvy to these dark secrets, but can only hope they are used for good and not evil.

Either that or Girardi is really a dope.
