Yes, I advocate firing the manager who has brought the Yankees to the best record in the American League and to an 8 game loss column lead despite major injuries to Andy Pettitte, Michael Pineda, Joba Chamberlain, Mariano Rivera, Brett Gardner, and (most recently) Alex Rodriguez.*
I know it is "smart baseball" to bring the infield in when you have to stop the guy on third from scoring. But I also know the cliche that bringing the infield in adds 100 points to a guy's batting average. Only one of these two things can be correct.
Either bringing the infield in makes it more or less likely to stop the guy on third. A part of it is the pitcher: David Robertson, pitching on Sunday night, owns a career GB:FB ration of 1.13. So he's not a worm killer. Leave the infield where it is.
I love watching Joe Maddon use a shift, because I know the shift is designed with facts in mind. Joe G carries a big binder, but I worry that it's mostly filled with love sonnets to Sergio Mitre (cue the photo gallery).
So yes, if Joe G has any more grand plans like what I saw tonight against the Red Sox, Fire Joe Girardi.*
