I wrote the below blog two days ago but never sent out an email and wanted to get these few words about last night’s win:
- Can we put an end to Stewart as CC’s personal catcher? CC has not looked like CC all year long and it is time switch it up.
- So much for the pitchers dual.
- The defense was still very poor and Cano had a rare off day. Tex could have made a play and Stewart struggled all game. Two awful fielding games in a row…even the throw home by Ibanez died.
- So our players do the swipe slide into home where they touch home plate with their hand…and RA Dickey goes straight in and blocks the catcher from the ball…OK, I get it
- If Robby Thompson wants to be aggressive at the right times; most likely sending Tex home with Stewart and CC coming up would have been a good idea. With one out I was fine with him holding him up, but he simply doesn’t get it.
- Logan did great again!
- Robertson and Soriano got the job done as well
- Some people were critical of Girardi for leaving CC in too long; I thought he handled it fine. Wade didn’t do his job again.
