Sweeping the Mets is all great and all, but it doesn't mean a thing to me if we can't take atleast 2 of 3 at Fenway.

On a sidenote: Why does Girardi wait to long to take Mitchell out? I seen Granderson on deck, I'm saying to myself if this guy gets on, then Girardi better pull Mitchell, he can't face Granderson.
So Girardi leaves Mitchell in, and on the first pitch hit a Grand Slam.
You gotta be kidding me with that.

Maybe he was waiting for a save situation (tying run on deck). You know how these players are concerned with their stats above winning. :sick:

My opinion of Girardi lessens with every game. I really don't understand many of his moves, and even non-moves. He is really tough to take a liking to.

You are hoping with a five run lead Mitchell can get three outs without you having to use your top relievers so they are fully rested for Boston. If he doesn't and gives up a grand slam (which he did) Betances comes in and you still have a two run lead.

You know you are not going to get length from Montgomery and Sabathia (5 and fly as he is not going to let them stay in to face a lineup the third 5ime around the order) this weekend even if they are pitching well, so a fully rested bullpen would be great. Betances wound up throwing 11 pitches.

I am not a fan of Giraldi. One of my criticism is he gets his top relievers (his "circle of trust") up too often even with a decent size lead. If Betrances had been brought in earlier I would have been fuming even though Mitchell wound up giving up the grand slam.

With the 13 man pitching staff we have been using, the 13th man doesn't pitch often and when he does his location is usually off. And this is what you get sometimes. Mitchell's last time out he did really well.

On to Boston!!!!

how sweep it is.
bravo sanchez - a healthy, all season long sanchez might have had boston chasing the pinstripes.
bravo severino - comeback pitcher of year - yankee starter in wild card playoff game.
dear mitchell, i did not mean for you to take chapman's place & give me the 9th inning shakes.
