Penalty for failed offside challenge among NHL rule changes

  Penalty for failed offside challenge among NHL rule changes The NHL has a clear message to coaches starting this season: Don't challenge an offside call unless you are really, really sure.At times last season, coaches challenged on the off chance a goal would get called back or to at least give players a breather because all it cost was a timeout. That is expected to change because, pending approval from the board of governors Wednesday, a failed offside challenge will instead result in a penalty as the league tries to get the coach's challenge closer to what it was intended to be.

Girardi made two questionable calls in the sixth before Francisco Lindor hit a grand slam to shrink the New York Yankees’ lead from 8-3 to 8-7. First he pulled starter CC Sabathia out of the game after the pitcher got one out and allowed a hit. Then there was the non-challenge.

Girardi had reliever Chad Green enter the game in the bottom of the sixth with one on and one out. He got a fly out, allowed a double, and then the umpires awarded Lonnie Chisenhall first base for a hit by pitch. Replay appeared to show that the pitch may have tipped off Chisenhall’s bat rather than his hand:

Chisenhall was credited with the hit by pitch, loading the bases with two outs. Lindor came up and smacked the grand slam that turned around the game.

The Yankees could have challenged the hit by pitch ruling. Had the replay shown the ball hit off Chisenhall’s bat, it could have been ruled as an inning-ending caught foul tip.

Here’s what the Yankees manager said about the decision not to challenge.

“There was nothing that told us he was not hit on the pitch,” Girardi said after the game. “By the time we got the super slow-motion we were probably beyond a minute. It was way too late. They tell us we have the 30 seconds. They will take longer in replay.”

Girardi said that beyond there being inconclusive evidence, he didn’t want to interrupt his pitcher.

“And probably being a catcher, my thought is I never want to break a pitcher’s rhythm. That’s how I think about it. There was nothing that said he wasn’t hit.”

However sound his reasoning was, Girardi certainly had some reasons why he opted not to challenge. Critics will say it was worth challenging anyhow, but his response is that he didn’t want to delay his pitcher. This answer is consistent with Girardi’s feelings, as he expressed several years ago before replay was introduced that he had issues about it affecting pitchers’ rhythms.

Ellsbury at DH for Yanks over Headley, Holliday in WC game

  Ellsbury at DH for Yanks over Headley, Holliday in WC game Jacoby Ellsbury will be the designated hitter for the New York Yankees in the AL wild-card game, with manager Joe Girardi keeping Chase Headley and Matt Holliday on the bench. Either Headley or Holliday was expected to be the DH, but Girardi will instead have both available to pinch hit. Aaron Hicks is in center field, which is Ellsbury's primary position. The 34-year-old Ellsbury has been a DH 12 times in his career, including four times this season.Brett Gardner will lead off for New York, with AL MVP contender Aaron Judge second. Right-hander Luis Severino will start for the Yankees.

For CC Sabathia, no moment, including ALDS Game 5, is too big .
&nbsp;I went to CC Sabathia’s press conference on Tuesday looking for an angle to write about his momentous Game 5 start. His renaissance season has been widely celebrated but, really, who ever figured even a few weeks ago that he’d get the ball over Sonny Gray with the season on the line?remarkable.So I asked him if he ever thought his days of pitching in games like this were as past tense as his 97 mph fastball, hoping he’d offer some insight about the challenge, as much mental as physical, of the slide from superstardom and then the refusal to accept mediocrity.
