Joe’s gotten a lot of shit this season. Some unwarranted and some deserved. Fuck at one point I’m pretty sure I compared him and his binder to an autistic kid and his special pencil. But in the wake of the recent tragedy for the Girardi family, tonight’s potential series clincher is for Joe. A night after the ballsiest call of his career pinch hitting for A Rod in the 9th, and nearly a week removed from the passing of his father, Joe deserves this one. First pitch 7:37, ALCS berth roughly 3 hours later.
