in less than two innings to the Detroit Tigers, who eventually won the second game of this three game set, 7-5.
Following the Tigers win, the media asked Girardi, for the second time this week, what he was going to do about tonight’s starter, and he said, “I like to sleep on things before I really do a lot of stuff.”
This is where I got confused because what exactly does Girardi need to sleep on?
All I keep wondering is what was Girardi thinking prior to this series?
When you think about it, no one is supposed to beat Justin Verlander as losing is to him is almost expected. So how do you feel good about starting Garcia in the second game with Verlander starting the first in a three game set?
Logically you would think the Yankees skipper is deciding how to replace both starters and dreaming of…whom to bring up from the minors? Giving David Phelps a go? And when exactly will Andy Pettitte be ready?
Enough time has been spent on Garcia and Hughes because reality is both need to go now, and there is no need to sleep on it unless you want nightmares.
Facts are Garcia is totally useless; and Hughes is as close to useless you can be.
In my opinion, neither should go to the bullpen because why mess up a good thing. And even if David Phelps gets a start, which he well deserves, there are fresher options in the minors for the bullpen.
Garcia should be released or maybe be put on the DL as something clearly isn’t working; it is just a matter of finding it.
Hughes should be sent down to prove himself in Triple-A, as maybe he can be productive at that level but I doubt it.
Keeping Hughes on a five-day schedule will at least keep Girardi and GM Brian Cashman happy, while not jeopardizing the team’s chances of winning.
Hey, Ivan Nova got sent down last year, and look at him now.
Still Nova is better than Hughes will ever be, as I have my doubts whether Hughes can even win more than 10-games in Scranton Wilkes-Barre.
So, now another series is in jeopardy due to one of these two fools. Garcia gave the Yankees little chance to win, just like Hughes did earlier in the week down in Arlington.
Well, Yankee fans can rest a little easier because ace CC Sabathia will be on the hill tonight against the Tigers Max Scherzer, and Sabathia will get the job done because he always does.
Now, all you hope for is that Girardi has literal nightmares about Hughes and Garcia even worse than the live ones we have all already endured; if that is even possible.
For my sanity I hope this ends soon as I cannot address this issue much longer, it is on Girardi and Cashman now, which is not very comforting.
