If you had any hopes for Sergio Mitre before tonight, I imagine tonight’s performance finished those off. Hopefully, tonight’s performance finished off Joe Girardi’s hopes as well.
I think they may have because Girardi chose to go to Robertson in the 4th with the game tied up again and Mitre sitting at "only" 75 pitches. They will burn out the pen tonight, covering at least five innings, but what really matters is where they go from here. Three Mitre starts are more than enough, let’s get the next entrant in the "Who wants to be the fifth starter" contest up here ASAP.
