There's a Reason We're in Third Place

Girardi stuck with Rasner too long.  I'll grant his pitch count wasn't high (83), and he'd been throwing strikes (61) but I don't let him face Zaun.  

Cano nonchalanted the throw, contributing an error to the inning.

Does anyone expect Marte to be effective at this point?  I know he had an injury that Girardi wouldn't talk about, but I would have stuck with Bruney at that point.

I know Arod grounded into a double play, but against BJ Ryan it's hard to be too critical.  Blame this one on the pitching that allowed 7 runs, and on the (mis)management.
