Why did I post a pic of Girardi? Because right now I’m mad that he stuck to his binder and the conventional wisdom and didn’t use Lyle Overbay at first against the O’s left-handed starter. Instead, he put the untested and offensively challenged David Adams there, and it cost the Yankees.
I didn’t think I’d be seeing any of the game. I went out for dinner on my first official night on the east coast, but we turned on the TV to watch when we got back to my mother’s and the Yanks were up 3-0. CC was in charge. Everything looked good. And then it all went to hell. That dribbler that Adams wasn’t there to field forced CC to work harder on a hot, humid night and it was inevitable that the O’s, never a team to roll over, would push back….and that our offense wouldn’t be able to counter.
And so a promising night turned into an “L.” Boo.
