Posts Tagged ‘Regular Season’

The New York Yankees have said that CC Sabathia has a grade 2 left hamstring strain and won’t pitch again this season. Supposedly, CC injured it during his last start but pitched through it. One would have to guess that he kept the injury secret from management, because I doubt Girardi would have kept him out there if he had known. This puts the nail in the coffin for the Yankees season (that’s if you still thought they had a chance).

These are the current American League Wild Card standings. The Yankees now sit two games behind the Tampa Bay Rays. The Rays have played poorly of late, dropping 7 of their last 10 games. This is exactly the time for the Yankees to make a move and play catch-up. They’ve got these next two games against the Orioles and then a big three-game series against the Boston Red Sox. At this point in the season, every head-to-head game is crucial. They can’t really afford to lose many more games to the Orioles or Rays with only 17 games left to play in the regular season. If I were a betting man, I wouldn’t say the Yankees have a great chance at making the playoffs..but it’s definitely doable. As I write this post, the Cleveland Indians are losing 5-2 to the Kansas City Royals in the top of the 8th inning. Let’s hope it stays that way.

Joe Girardi

Joe Girardi was put in a spot last year where he was set up for failure. Not that he wouldn’t be much of a manager, but he was taking the job of a man who was a legend in New York. That guy’s name was Joe Torre.

Joe Girardi entered the 2008 season with high expectations. Mr. Torre brought the Yankees to the playoffs every year from 1996 until he left at the end of the 2007 season. He also brought four World Championships to the city of New York, and was still “let go”. Torre felt that he was being low-balled by management, and the pressure of managing was worse than ever, so he left holding a grudge. The funny part about all of it was that Girardi missed the playoffs entirely last year. It was a major disappointment and had the organization second-guessing what they did. Girardi had been criticized by fans all season long (including me) about the way he manages this team. Whether it be the way he manages the bullpen, overmanaging, the way he handled the media, or the way he set up his rotation…fans got on him.

In this World Series, Girardi gained some points in my book by the way he managed the team. I had a lot of complaints about him during the ALDS and ALCS, but I feel like he pulled the right strings for the most part in the Fall Classic. Not only did he do a better job of managing the ball club, but in the end he won a World Series ring. (more…)
