Joe Girardi on Yankees' Game 2 collapse: 'I screwed up'

The pitcher whose creaky knee nearly made him quit in the middle of his 17 season had outlasted likely Cy Young Award victor Corey Kluber. Somehow, some way, Francona continues to make decisions that seem questionable from the outside but work out perfectly. Asked about his ability to win after losses on Thursday, Sabathia didn't have an answer, saying "it's one of those stats of the year, I guess". Then the scoring stopped as the game inched on into night, past nine, 10, 11, and 12 innings. Carlos Santana walked. Jay Bruce lined out.

Fans were understandably furious, and one of them called Girardi a "complete imbecile" and called for the Yankees to find a new manager.

"Well, we looked at. you know, it's kind of what we've done all year with (Chad) Green".

"I don't really have any concerns about it because as watching him go through some of his ups and downs this year, how he's always bounced back, " Girardi said. "Usually, we give CC somewhere around 90 pitches. I don't think he's going to start on Sunday, but he's not been ruled out either". "So, yes, I'm pretty prepared to go into the game". If the review had been made, Lindor likely would have led off the seventh, but instead came to bat with the based loaded and sent a pitch over the fence for a grand slam cutting a five-run lead to just 1 with momentum all in the hands of the Indians.

The New York Yankees lost in heart-breaking fashion to the Cleveland Indians during Game 2 of the ALDS, and on Saturday manager Joe Girardi took full responsibility. Over his final three starts in the Bronx this season, Gray allowed 15 runs and 17 hits - six of which were home runs - across 15 and two-thirds innings, fishing with a 5.65 ERA in five home starts. Playing the matchups is one thing, especially when using sabermetric stats, but living and dying by the binder is only partially why the Yankees are playing in their first ALDS since 2012.
