Brandon McCarthy's wife gets stuck in traffic during his first Yankees win

The same can't be said for his wife, Amanda McCarthy, who got stuck in some brutal New York City traffic on her way to Yankee Stadium to see her husband pitch and missed some parts of the game.
McCarthy's wife took to social media to voice her frustrations.
Never driving to the ballpark again... Lesson learned— Amanda McCarthy (@Mrs_McCarthy32) July 19, 2014
Her gripes are valid. Anyone who has driven in New York understands just how difficult it can be to get from point A to point B in an efficient manner because of the incessant traffic. After all, it's the largest city in America in terms of population, but nowhere near the biggest in terms of land mass.
Fortunately, the pitcher's wife eventually made it in time for the end of the game, but she'd like to use a different mode of transportation for McCarthy's next start.
