Is Joe Girardi managing his way out of New York?

Last night's 6-4 loss to the Tampa Bay Rays could not only be pinned on an ineffective start by C.C. Sabathia, but one can also look no further than the manager as to who was responsible for the key setback.

This season has been a series of high peaks (a 20-7 June record) and deep valleys (5-7 in September so far) for the "Bombers."  In each case, manager Joe Girardi has been a responsible leader in either giving credit to those contributing wins, or accepting blame for the frustrating losses.

Yesterday's game is a microcosm of the entire season, and coming out of it are several questions as to why Girardi chose to do (or not do) moves that led directly to failure.

Taking a look at his decisions against Tampa may reveal why Yankee fans are frustrated with their manager's performance.
