With the game as lopsided as it was, managerial decisions did not change much. That being said, there were quite a few modifications that could have greatly changed the game had they not taken place.
Jim Leyland pulled Scherzer right after his first run allowed, and while I'm sure he would have liked to remain in the game, he was at 98 pitches and was the right move to make. I wouldn't have minded seeing Jose Valverde get another shot, but I understand why Leyland didn't put him in.
Joe Girardi, despite the terrible Yankees performance, was not all that bad. Some may question pinch-hitting Alex Rodriguez and Curtis Granderson, but Raul Ibanez and Russell Martin failed to get any hits, so why not put them in.
The Yankees 'pen was somewhat overused again. Five different arms lasted no more than an inning, but then again the bullpen has not been the problem, it's the hitting. Girardi cannot make them magically hit.
