After last night's loss to the Twins, Joe Girardi explained his reasoning for bringing in Boone Logan by pointing out that Logan has "a ton of success against Span." He also said he felt Phil Hughes was tiring: he was losing command and location, getting the ball up and getting into some long counts.
Okay, I'll buy it.
I'm in the minority for sure. With the failures Logan has had this season it's so easy to blame Girardi for what happened last night. But I'm not going to. He made the move, it didn't work out, so we all need to move on to the remaining eight games. Case closed.
The Orioles have now lost two in a row. I will be shocked if they lose again today. It will likely not happen, which means today's Yankee game is a must-win. CC Sabathia gets the ball.
Just win, big fella. Just win.
