Stop complaining about Girardi refusing to bench Jeter: He's saving the Yankees' future

OK, think this through with me:If Girardi wanted to mortgage the Yankees' future for the chance of a 2014 wild card shot - a far-flung chance - he could go Dwight Shrute on the lineup, with a series of daily tweaks, and bump Jeter in the order, or even bench the Captain altogether. But why? What difference would it make?In fact, over the long haul, it would be counter-productive...

Remember the great Torre teams? How every night, a new guy stepped up and delivered a key hit, a shutdown inning, or a great play in the field?Girardi's Yankees are the team that always, somehow, springs a new leak.Last night, it was David Robertson, who was just starting to be appreciated.

Should we worry about the fact that the Scranton Railriders now have used position players to pitch in two straight games, and Matt Thornton is doing well in Washington?

I recognize that Triple A games don't matter, that Scranton-Wilkes Barre doesn't really exist, and that the real key to International League play is to never ask a pitcher to take one for the team. When a staff is tired, compromises must be made. I'm all in. Still... two games in a row?Last night, here's the Scranton box score. Keep in mind: Jose Gill is a catcher.The previous night...

More importantly, they scheduled it right up against the...
