With the past 24 hours being overwhelmed by Posada-gate, I’ll just tie up some loose ends with Jorge before moving on to tonight’s game.
-Jack Curry Tweets that “Posada said he apologized to Girardi. “I had a bad day yesterday,” he said.
-Brian Hoch Tweets that Jorge plans to talk to Brian Cashman as well.
-Jorge Posada Sr, who is a scout for the Rockies, says he “made a bad decision”
-Laura Posada has removed the “bad back” post from her Twitter account.
-The Yanks are seeking to dock Jorge two days pay, according to Joel Sherman
-Buster Olney Teetwed this: “Bottom line on the whole Posada thing: This episode will accelerate his departure from the team unless he starts producing at the plate ASAP”
To nobodies surprise, Jorge Posada is not in the lineup tonight. With two tough lefties in Lester and Price due to face them in the next two games, it was unlikely he would have played anyway. The real test will be Tuesday night facing James Shields, who he is 5-12 against with a HR for the past 2 seasons.
In other Yankee news, Brian Hoch just reported that Rafael Soriano has “more stiffness in his pitching elbow”. No word yet on whether he’s available tonight or if it’s serious. b
With that out of the way, here is today’s lineup:
Derek Jeter SS
Curtis Granderson CF
Mark Teixeira 1B
Alex Rodriguez 3B
Robinson Cano 2B
Nick Swisher RF
Andruw Jones DH
Russell Martin C
Brett Gardner LF
Freddy Garcia goes for the Yanks, with Jon Lester on the bump for the BoSox.
