I get it. Girardi tends to overmanage but to throw him under the bus for stuff that really isn't his fault let low-class organizations like the Mets and Red Sux do that.
Every team has injuries and this year hasn't been as bad as some. The Nationals have had way more injuries and still managed to dominate. He has a lead going down the stretch and has a healthy cast for the most part right now. If he can't close the deal I want no part of him to be honest. It would be a pretty big bungle if he blew the POs with this team. He has been lucky with the down fall of Boston but overall hasn't done a very good job here. You can go ahead and say he won a WS. This is the Yankees every year has has a team capable of that. If he can't do those little things and put this team in a spot to win more then he isn't doing his job. period.
