Mark Feinsand of the NY Daily News (via twitter) reported after the game that Kelly Shoppach would have been the last batter CC Sabathia faced no matter what happened. Interesting enough Shoppach got a hit in that at bat. The fact that Girardi would have taken CC out during his no hitter is perplexing enough. Not often do pitchers get taken out during no hit attempts. CC Sabathia didn't want to be taken out, saying "there would have been a discussion." Kelly Shoppach didn't believe it either. Personally, I believe that Girardi would do it, but I do not think it would be the right decision.
What do you guys think? Would you take CC out if Shoppach didn't get a hit? Would you let CC convince you to let him in? Thoughts? One more question: Believe in superstition, as mentioned over 484,842 times during the FOX broadcast?
