    I also saw that. I imagine Girardi is popping a few Tums today.

    This isn't about "sniveling". This is about holding someone accountable for a piss poor baseball decision. Girardi alienated himself by not owning up to his mishap. It took his own players to blast him publicly before he issued a mea culpa.

    Did the pitchers own up to pitching up a beachball?

    Fans only ***** when things don't go their way...when a coach/manager makes a good decision that may not line up with the fan's choice, we never hear about that...fans are always right...coaches and managers are only right when the fan wants them to be...of course fans always think they are right, and will battle to the end that they are...but if the fans were always right, they'd be managers/coaches...they'd rather be armchair quraterbacks and tell the world how great they would do in those situations...it's reality unfortunately...

    I'd agree with this for the most part. Things happen a lot faster on the field than on TV with a dozen replays. Whether the Sox win another game or not I hope Farrell is back next year. Likewise I think the Yanks are better off with girardi than whoever would replace him. Do the sabermetricians have managerial WAR yet?? mWAR

    Sadly, you're incorrect here. Girardi had 2 challenges to burn with a 5 run lead. Why not waste one in a potential bases loaded situation with Lindor of all people coming up? Girardi said it himself that he placed the opinion of Weber, an instant replay guy over his own catcher because he's been about 75 percent correct all year on challenges. Fans aren't always right and I'm a bigger fan of baseball in general. I don't give a rats tail who the manager is. You challenge in that scenario whether you're Girardi or a first year skip. Stop being biased and making false generalizations.

    Hah! Love it - I think that can be referred to as a 'pocket post' where my phone unlocked and I must have leaned on the screen. Deep thoughts.

    I thought you were either wholeheartedly agreeing with me in a strange language or your keyboard had completely jizzed out.

    Honestly I've been solving so many obscure chess puzzles lately that I was convinced your post had a solution and tried for about 20 min to decode it

    The best I came up with was "I've recently immortal leveraged within, 3 unrelented ..." then I gave up. I still think somethings there.
