Yankees pitcher German was just yanked in the top of the seventh while throwing a no-hitter. I hate these managers!!!! In 1972, Preston Gomez yanked a pitcher throwing a no-hitter and got no end of crap from the baseball writers. But NO, we have to bow to the god of the almighty pitch count!! The pitch count is All, save the Pitch count!!! Does it not occur to these knuckleheads that the fans might want to see a no-hitter? Does it not occur to these knuckleheads that the pitcher might want the opportunity to throw one? a no-hitter is usually a once-in-a-lifetime event for a pitcher. To rob him of this opportunity is unconscionable.
Update: I would hate be someone that roots against the Yankees. After German got removed, Betances gave up three runs on three hits and then holder gave up a run, leaving the Yankees in a 4-0 hole going into the bottom of the eighth. What did they do? They scored three runs in the bottom of the eighth and won it in the bottom of the ninth on a three-run walk-off homerun. They deserved to lose but won, no thanks to Aaron Boone.
