Yankees’ Girardi sarcastically responds to MLB’s possible restriction on relief pitchers
At a press conference on Thursday, a reporter informed New York Yankees manager Joe Girardi that MLB Commissioner Rob Manfred said in an interview that the league was exploring a restriction on the usage of relief pitchers as a means of shortening games.
Manfred made the remarks on ESPN’s Mike & Mike:
As if Girardi doesn’t have enough problems with his roster, the league might interfere with his ability to manage his team’s biggest strength — the bullpen. (Well see how things unfold at the trade deadline).
Someone get Girardi a drink. Maybe a shot of Seagram’s 7.
Joe Girardi offers his own unique response to Rob Manfred saying MLB is looking at limiting the use of relievers.https://t.co/2OdylE5b3s
