When asked to explain, Girardi ranted that Ike Davis couldn't hit a ball over a Little League fence without climatic juice.
"That ball barely made it into the first row. And it went off of Swisher's glove, so it should have been a grounds-rule double."
When a reporter from the NY Post suggested that a ball bouncing off a player's glove and over the wall is indeed a homer, Girardi accused him of being a right-wing climate change denier.
"SHUT UP!" he explained, then stormed out of the pressroom without answering any further questions.
