The argument can be made that, in yesterday's series finale against the Orioles, Pettitte was pulled too early. After all, he was only at 93 pitches. However, he's 40 years old and had given up two relatively hard hit balls, so I won't fault Girardi too much there. I won't fault him for bringing in Shawn Kelley either, because strikeouts were needed and, before Sunday's game, that was Kelley's speciality.I do, however, hold him solely responsible for bringing in Joba Chamberlain in a 4-3 game. It was a deficit small enough that the suddenly clicking Yankees offense could certainly overcome. By the time Chamberlain was done, however, it was a 7-3 game.Every Yankee fan saw that coming. It was our worst fear. Even if, as Suzyn Waldman said during the game's radio broadcast, Chamberlain had been much better over his past few appearances.

  • Joe should not only stop using Joba...he needs to stop starting Hughes, the man is NOT A FREAKING STARTER PERIOD!!!!!!! The rain delay in game one against the White Sox was heaven sent since they didn't run Hughes back out there when the game restarted. I am one Yankee fan who is sick and tired of Chamberlain and Hughes...wish the team would just release them already, their free agents at years end and it's for sure the Yankees will not be offering them contracts. The Yankees could do no worse if they used a pitcher called up from the minors to replace both of these losers.
