Everybody would be calling him gutless, a player who isn't willing to sacrifice himself for the team, etc... Plus, from what I've seen of Torts, he'd surely rip him a new one for not doing what he's being ask to.

Girardi went for a percentage play. 19 times out of 20, blocking the shot is merely painful; nothing more. But every time and then, you roll a natural 1.
Thats an exaggeration. The goal would hardly stand out in any way in such an abysmal performance.

Pretty sure Torts would be busy ripping Gaborik a new one, or Richards, or 15 other guys before Girardi. I'm just not a fan of blocking shots in decided games. If it hits you, great, but don't go out of your way and risk injury for literally no reason.
