I'm sorry, but this is completely infuriating.
On Monday night, Luis Severino choked big time, really dropping the ball in his start against the Boston Red Sox in Game 3.
As it turns out, Sevy wasn't mentally prepared for this contest from the start. According to TBS, Severino showed up late for warmups because... he didn't know what time the freaking game started.
Was Luis Severino confused about this game's start time? TBS reported he didn't begin warm-ups until 7:32 p.m. We will find out more postgame.— Bryan Hoch (@BryanHoch) October 9, 2018

You have got to be kidding me.
Ron Darling said on TBS that Severino had to be told just minutes ago that the game started at 7:40. He didn’t start his warm-ups until 7:32 which Darling indicated was very late.— Marc Bertrand (@Marc_Bertrand) October 8, 2018
He showed up eight minutes before the game was set to begin for his warmups?
No wonder the Red Sox tore him up.
Angel Hernandez is suing MLB for discrimination. MLB should be countersuing for malpractice.— Jeff Passan (@JeffPassan) October 9, 2018
I think the only guy coming even close to having as rough a night as Sevy in the Bronx is Angel Hernandez, who somehow still has a job.
Aaron Boone and the Yankees should be embarrassed for their performance in Game 3. And for Severino, he owes everyone in New York an apology for this latest blunder.
