In tonight’s game win against the Boston Red Sox, what was Chan Ho Park doing in the game?
Park just got off the DL today and has not pitched since April 16, so putting him in such a tight situation, at the top of the 7th inning, made no sense.
The Red Sox blasted Park in the 8th inning, with two homeruns hit and took the lead from the Yankees, who looked obviously disappointed.
Joba didn’t even go a whole inning on Sunday, so he easily could have been used tonight. That’s when I realized that maybe he left the game against the Twins with an injury. The timing was weird, but I just blamed it on Girardi’s micromanaging.
Come to think of it, it explains Javier Vazquez move to the bullpen , the Yankees are desperate.Girardi claimed it was only as a precaution if the Yankees needed a long-man on Monday or Tuesday, and that Vazquez was still scheduled to start Friday against the Mets
Then why was Vazquez not put in over Park or Logan?
Also, why was Vazquez put in for the last out of the eighth and ninth inning?
Something is not right here and Girardi is not dishing on the true health of this team. It is annoying because it is so obvious by what has transcended tonight.
Whatever kind of fake out Girardi is trying to pull is not making much of a difference. Terry Francona can see the bullpen and what is NOT happening out there.
