FYI: If you’re currently involved in a criminal conspiracy with Joe Girardi and a bunch of other guys and you can feel the heat starting to come down, you can probably assume that Girardi is the snitch:
“The reason I made that pitching change is that I didn’t want (Bruney) to throw a ton of pitches and not be available (today),” Girardi said. Girardi said he wanted Bruney to be kept to around 20 pitches (he threw 18). He also said he’d talk to Bruney about the rough outing. Bruney has 10 walks in his last 12-1/3 innings. “The guy’s not trying to walk people there,” Girardi said. “We’ll keep working. We’ll get it straightened out.”
Only problem was that the pitching change involving Bruney took place int the ninth inning. Joe Girardi was ejected from the game in the fifth. Ergo, he should not have been making pitching changes.
Note to Girardi: always be careful when using your out-loud voice.
