Joe G Culpa

7 Oct

NYY skipper Joe Girardi sat through an uncomfortable press conference this afternoon in which he was repeatedly and pointedly asked if 1/ he’d made a mistake and how that happened; and 2/ whether he trusts his catcher, Gary Sanchez, who repeatedly yelled “foul” to get the coaching staff to revisit a ball that supposedly hit Lonnie Chisenhall, but more likely hit the nub of his bat.

Not a fine moment for the media, but Joe had it coming.  His gaffe may have cost the NYY a much-needed victory against the Tribe in the AL Championship Series.  But given other news in recent days, it seems he didn’t really deserve such a takedown.
