A 10.57 ERA Girardi and you keep bringing Joba into a game. 10.57?????? How many times is this guy going to FAIL before you figure it out? HE’S DONE, FINISHED, THRU!!!!! RELEASE HIM!!!!


This team’s bullpen STINKS!!!! With the exception of Robertson, Logan and Soriano they STINK!!!! Joba and Lowe CANNOT PITCH GIRARDI. What part of that don’t you understand??????????


Now Girardi being in Part II of the Babied Bums, Joba. WHY????? Put Nunez in the Game, Joe. He can pitch better than this guy.


Once Again Phil Hughes proves what I have been saying about him for four years. The guy is a marginal pitcher who is TOTALLY UNDEPENDABLE. I agree with you Sam, However, in defense of Girardi, his bullpen is wornout. Frankly why is it that Hughes is incapable of going 6 innings and now probably leads the MLB in giving up HR’s? Face it folks these two young pitchers, Joba & Hughes, have been BABIED by this team far too long. Neither one will amount to a hill of BEANS. Unload them at the end of the year and end their collective careers with the Yankees. IF Crashman had G*nads he’d send both of these failures to the Cubs for a couple of White Castle Hamburgers & two beers.


Another case of pitching mismanagement by Girardi … it was obvious in the 5th inning that Hughes was losing his effectiveness….why didn’t Joe have a relief pitcher ready for the 6th?
