Everybody Hates Joe Girardi Right Now

Everybody Hates Joe Girardi Right Now

Sanchez, who had a great view of the contact, immediately signaled to Girardi and the Yankees dugout that this was an improper call. The series-changing moment, one that will haunt Girardi straight into this offseason if his team doesn't pull off a miracle comeback, came in the sixth inning with the Yankees still ahead 8-3 and the Indians trying to mount a two-out rally.

Cleveland Indians slugger Edwin Encarnacion is hoping to play again this postseason after sustaining ligament damage in his right ankle during Game 2 of the AL Division Series against the New York Yankees.

The obvious challenge never came.

Plate umpire Dan Iassogna said the pitch grazed Chisenhall's hand, though Chisenhall didn't even react. They make you throw a lot of pitches. Had manage Joe Girardi requested a review of the hit-by-pitch it most likely would have been overturned and called strike three on a foul tip into the catcher's mitt. Entering Friday, Sabathia was 9-0 with a 1.71 ERA in 11 starts following a Yankees loss. The replay looked as if the ball may have missed Chisenhall's hands and actually struck the butt of his bat, but Girardi elected not to challenge, setting the stage for a Francisco Lindor grand slam that cut the deficit to one.

Indians manager Terry Francona made two moves with his lineup.

Girardi is in the final year of his contract, and this one decision won't - and shouldn't - change the decision to bring him back. Trevor Bauer pitched 6 2/3 scoreless innings to anchor a 4-0 Indians victory in Game 1.

Within hours of the crushing loss, there were already rumors that the early elimination from the playoffs could lead to Joe Girardi being canned as Yankees manager. Cleveland ultimately tied the game on a Jay Bruce home run and Yan Gomes extra-inning walk-off hit.

But the decision that made the least sense was pulling CC Sabathia out of the game despite his performance.

Secondly, Girardi's pitcher wasn't in any kind of rhythm to begin with.
