How many times does Joe Torre have to lose a game for us before he realizes that he should STOP FUCKING PINCH-RUNNING FOR JASON GIAMBI?!?!?!

I'm so angry right now--and it's several hours after the game ended--I can't concentrate on anything.

Think of all the ways that Bubba Crosby could score from second base that Jason Giambi couldn't. Now think of the likelihood of those events happening. I bet it was less likely than the 4th spot in the batting order coming up again, wasn't it?

What do you mean you didn't do the math? Slacker.

Yesterday was the third game in a row in which Torre made a poor decision that made it more difficult for the Yankees to win. They might still have lost all three games, but I think they might have won one of them. Why does Joe Torre make these decisions? Because he can't look bad by doing them. How many newspapers are going to take him to task for pinch-running Crosby for Giambi? How many would have criticized him if he hadn't, and Giambi hadn't scored on a single?

I don't want to talk about this anymore. I'm too mad to be objective.
