It makes you wonder why Girardi had Grandy leading off in the first place. It's inexcusable when you have Jeter AND Ichiro on the team.
Past two nights Girardi left Nova and Hughes in too long. Now he pulls our "ace" CC too soon. Worst baseball instincts I've ever seen.
"Cano suffers because he gets nothing to swing at."
I looked back at the box scores, and Cano, for almost every game, batted BEHIND ARod in the lineup. So your statement really doesn't apply, does it? He would have to have been batting in front of him for your statement to make sense.
