Here’s to a great week!
Phillies 4, Padres 3
Astros 6, Yankees 5
It’s worth re-sharing part of that Tito quote. From Terry Pluto:
1. I know some fans are still debating the decision to not start Shane Bieber in the win-or-go-home Game 5 of the Yankee series. Bieber would have been pitching on three days rest, something he had never done as a pro.
2. Manager Terry Francona said: “I know it wasn’t a popular decision, but you can’t just care about your guys when it’s convenient. Biebs was willing to do whatever we ask, I want to make sure people know that. With what happened last year, I didn’t think I’d be living up to what I promised our players. You can put that one on me.”
