Joe Girardi did it again today. He does it a lot. Today's example of his being a Nervous Nellie manager: Yanks led 5-1 in the 9th. Girardi let a lesser relief pitcher start the 9th. He allowed a leadoff single. Girardi had closer Aroldis Chapman warm up.
Two more batters needed to reach base just to bring the tie run to the plate. What the heck? Joe, settle down. The lesser relief pitcher finished the inning and the Yankees won. But come on.
