How do you not walk Ramirez?

With the Yankees leading 2-1 in the bottom of the sixth, Manny Ramirez came up with runners on second and third with two out.

Ramirez had homered off Mike Mussina earlier in the game and was 24-95 career-wise against Mussina coming into the game.

The Yankees should've done the smart thing and walked Ramirez to face Kevin Youkilis.

They didn't, however, and Ramirez proceeded to double into the gap to give the Red Sox a 3-2 lead and end Mussina's afternoon.

It's also amazing how Mussina always seems to give up the lead soon after he is given it. This has been a common theme throughout Mussina's Yankee career.

And as I type this, Youkilis singles off of Brian Bruney to make the score 4-2.

That was one of the worst managerial decisions I have ever seen in my life. I hope this isn't a sign of the type of manager Girardi is, because if it is then we're in a lot of trouble.
