MLB  > General MLB  > Yankees skipper Joe Girardi punked a future hall of famer...

Joe Girardi not only embarrasses one of the greatest players the game have ever seen but also kicks the guy while he's down by benching him for a 200 hitter.

Joe's decision on game 3 of pinch-hitting Raul Ibanez for Alex Rodriguez was considered a genius move by many fans, of course it all blew up on his face when he tried to repeat it with Eric Chavez in game 4.

I still believe you have to give Alex Rodriguez his due respect and let the guy hit, at least in game four, shame on the Yankees for punkin one of the greatest.

All I can say is that it takes some stones to do that my friends, they most be as big as Jupiter's moons.

Just saying.

Oh and by the way have you folks seen the Yankees playoffs batting average, here they are:

Swisher: .133

Cano: .111

Suzuky: .200

Martin: .214

Granderson: .063 (are you kidding me, this guy had 106 rbi)

You must agree that the problem is not just Alex Rodriguez, the only ones having a decent series for the mighty Yankees are Jeter and Teixeira, the rest of the hitters are using a paper bat.

If Joe Girardi doesn't win this series he will only be remembered for the benching of hall of famer Alex Rodriguez. Good luck there pal.

As always this is just a fans opinion and from what I understand everybody has one and I thank God for that.

Enough said.

The Yankees won without A Fraud in the lineup. Enough said.

You think A-Rod will get into the HOF with his admission of 'roids?
