Mike Francesa admonished a caller on Tuesday who asked what the Yankees might do if Luis Severino had to be pulled in the 1st inning. Severino promptly went out and gave up 4 hits and 3 runs and recorded one out before he was pulled. Bask in the hindsight.
Francesa guaranteed that a short start was not in the cards and boasted that Severino went 5+ innings in at least 95% of his starts this season. (Severino went 5+ innings in 90% of his starts this season.) Severino started 31 games and left very early in 3 of them.
As recently as September 20th, he had a 3-inning outing. His shortest start of the season before last night was back in May against the Houston Astros when he was chased after 2 and 1/3 innings. So, should the Yankees beat the Indians, they could have that to look forward to.
