Twins at Yankees, ALCS Game 3
I had a feeling that not pitching CC was a mistake. In the top of the 7th, it has been. Not because Burnett really stunk, but because he only lasted 5 innings. What that means is that for the last 4 innings, the Yankees have had to rely on their bullpen. And their bullpen sucks. It has since last year, and has tonight. They just can't get through innings 6, 7, and 8, and that is a huge mistake. They need CC available 3 times every series because there simply are not 2 other wins in the rotation. Pettite will get one. But Hughes? An enigma, especially after Game 2. And this guy has never been huge in the post season. So they need CC. You make the call...Girardi has the benefit of every doubt, but still, you make the call.
