I’ll let the real beat writers give you the quotes and all that, but here’s a quick rundown of Joe Girardi’s post-game press conference…
- David Robertson wasn’t available, Girardi wanted to give him more rest following his long outing on Saturday.
- Joba Chamberlain was also not available, which is kinda odd because he hasn’t pitched in three games now, and has appeared just twice in the last nine days. That doesn’t really make sense.
- Anyway, Girardi did indirectly say that he expects both to be available tomorrow, but wouldn’t say it flat out.
- He was saving Mariano Rivera for a save situation, and didn’t want to use Javy Vazquez so soon after his start on Friday.
- “I believe in my guys” must have been mumbled a million times; Girardi was clearly agitated. Welcome to the club.
