Joe Girardi: "I screwed up" by not challenging HBP call

  • Yankees' Jacoby Ellsbury sitting for Game 1 of ALDS

With his four-year contract up after this year, the team could simply let Girardi go with thanks for his years of service. His decision may have cost the Yankees a chance at a split in Cleveland.

Yankees manager Joe Girardi is going with Ellsbury over Chase Headley because of his success in the past against Cleveland ace Corey Kluber.

While this is only one game in a best-of-three series, getting on the board first can be extremely important in the postseason.

Joe Girardi hasn't earned his nickname of "Binder Joe" because it sounds cool. 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. He said Brett Weber, who runs the Yankees replay system and tells Girardi whether or not to challenge calls, had not yet seen a conclusive replay in the allotted 30 seconds showing what Sanchez claimed. The designated hitter said he's day to day.

The ball hit the bat and was caught by Sanchez which would have made three outs and the inning over with the Indians stranding a pair of runners and the Yankees leading 8-3. "I used the formula I've been using the last two or three months and [Friday] night it didn't work". In 11 games as a reliever last season, Severino was 3-0 with a 0.39 and 25 strikeouts in 23 and one-thirds innings; the then-22-year-old, who started two games when the Yankees were eliminated from playoff contention, also held opponents to a 0.105 batting average. "I'm ready. I want to get back out there". "So I'm not really too concerned about it".

"There's no fracture, it's just the ligaments and I'm going to be day-to-day", Encarnacion said. It's always a good reminder that for all of the information we have as fans, there is more behind the scenes and a human element that we can't quantify. He is 9-5 with a 4.53 ERA in 19 postseason games (18 starts). And perhaps they win this game, and this series, next year.
