1. Stupid baserunning outs. Stop it!

2. Removing your clean-up hitter in a tie game for a pinch runner is stupid. really stupid.

3. Enrique Wilson is not the right choice at 2B.

Going up to watch the 11th.

1) In all fairness, Jeter looked safe in the 1st inning. Jeter stealing is ok because he usually has a very high success rate - 78% career, though only 68% last year.

2) This had me peaved. Though those that went to the game with me agreed with the move because "that run needs to score".

3) Cairo had a very good at bat in the 12th, even though the outcome was not great.

He always lifts Giambi for a runner in close games, it drives me insane.

pinch running at that spot was horrific. YOu have to wait until there is one out. If he did that, he wouldn't have had to make the move because he would have been on third.

Secondly, you it was only the 7th. You know Giambi would come up again in the 9th. Torre is an awful manager.
