I’ve been running behind on my blog posts, missing one for the trip we took to the new Yankees stadium to see them bash the Red Sox back in September. But, after tonight’s game, I couldn’t resist throwing a quick post together.
CC Sabathia came back on short rest in a very important game for the Yankees. In LA, they were up 2-1 in the series. Bringing back a pitcher on short rest in the playoffs is a recipe for disaster. Historically, it never works. Enter CC. What did he do?
He just pitched 8 innings of 1 run ball. 8 innings. 5 hits. 5 strikeouts.
Oh, and the Yankees dominated the Angels for 13 hits and 10 runs.
We need 5 more wins to accomplish our goal.
Oh, and for all the people questioning Joe Girardi’s decision making last night, where were you when he made all the right decisions against the Twins? And made a great decision to save Game 2 against the Angels.
