Dear results-oriented sportswriters everywhere,
You are wrong. C.C. Sabathia was still the right choice to start today's game.
Allowing ten baserunners in five innings does not make the starting pitcher the "Chevrolet Player of the Game" or a good clutch performer. Paul Byrd remains a fringe fourth starter who didn't pitch particularly well and was lucky not to get lit up by a strong lineup.
Also, on behalf of the other 29 teams in MLB, thank you for your upcoming articles on why Alex Rodriguez should leave the Yankees.
