Astros, Red Sox announce starters for first 2 ALCS games

The Yankees’ last hope doesn’t need video help or butterflies

Modal Trigger CC Sabathia Paul J. Bereswill

In the two games at Yankee Stadium, the home team was outscored 20-4 and failed to hit a home run despite crushing an MLB-record 267 during the regular season.

In 21st century baseball, the game doesn't always end when it seems, hanging in limbo until umpires in a downtown Manhattan replay room agree.

"He was bad behind the plate today, he's awful at first base", Sabathia continued.

Sabathia's criticism mirrors that of three-time Cy Young victor Pedro Martinez, who sounded off on Hernandez's controversial calls on Monday night when three of his decisions at first base were overturned upon replay review. Four plays at first base were reviewed in the first four innings, and three were overturned.

Despite his criticism, Sabathia did make it clear that he didn't think Hernandez was the difference in Tuesday's game, according to ESPN's Coley Harvey.

Boston starter Rick Porcello, who allowed one run on five hits and no walks in five innings while throwing 48 of 65 pitches for strikes, had no such problems with Hernandez's performance.

"Throw the ball over the plate C.C".

Sabathia continued to express his frustration, adding that it was "sad" that Hernandez was chosen as the umpire for playoff games. "I thought Angel Hernandez called a good game".

Twitter absolutely went off on Hernandez during and after the game and he was actually trending in the US after.
