I hate second-guessing the manager and try hard to restrict this feature to first-guessing or just avoid the topic altogether, because for the most part it’s just not worth doing. However, there are times when I just can’t resist. I usually restrict such thoughts to the playoffs, but Friday night’s game against the Mets provided an example so excruciating, and so topical, that we must proceed.

With the Yankees trailing 1-0 in the bottom of the seventh, Frankie Cervelli led off with a double. This brought Chad Huffman to the plate. Huffman is neither experienced nor a particularly great hitter, but the manager has to keep in mind that as a rule, a righty hitting against a righty is generally not going to be at as large of a disadvantage as a lefty hitting
