Girardi pushes panic button, costs Yanks

BALTIMORE—Joe Girardi seemed more upset about losing the argument than losing the game.

That, my friends, pretty much says it all about Wednesday night’s crushing loss to the Baltimore Orioles and about the true state of the manager of the New York Yankees’ confidence in his team’s postseason chances.

And it says an awful lot about the way he managed this game, which went a long way toward insuring his team would lose it.
