For God’s sake, no more Chris Capuano
You know life is tough when my wife, a die-hard New York Yankees fan, calls you Cappuccino, instead of calling you by your real name.
In 22 games (four starts) with the New York Yankees, Chris Capuano pitched 40.2 innings, gave up 52 hits, 38 runs, six homeruns, had a WHIP of 1.82, and had an earned run average of 7.97. Those numbers aren’t misleading, either. He was that bad.
But what’s worse is that Joe Girardi kept sending him out there.
The last time that Capuano had a respectable season was in 2012 with the Los Angeles Dodgers. The last time that Capuano was better than average was in 2005 with the Milwaukee Brewers. So yeah, Capuano hasn’t been good in 10 years.
Heck, if they need someone to pitch an inning while giving up 25 homeruns and walking no fewer than 102, I’m ready to go to work, boss.
