In case you didn’t hear, the Yankees jumped right out of the gates with three runs in the first inning. Instead of going on to a rout victory, the White Sox bullpen was lights out once again and Sergio Mitre didn’t make it into the fourth inning. The Yanks lost 10-5.
This begs the question if Mitre gets to keep his job. Here is an alarming response from Joe Girardi.
"I'm not sure we have a lot of options at this point," Yankees manager Joe Girardi said. "He's got to get it done."
As PeteAbe put it, “Translation: I sure hope Brian Cashman comes up with a waiver deal for a warmer body.”
I don’t see how Cashman could feel confident with Mitre starting one more game for his club. In three starts, he’s pitched 13-2/3 innings and has allowed 12 earned runs.
MLBTR pointed out that Paul Byrd is still unsigned. He would definitely be an upgrade over Mitre. What do you think?
