Yankee manager Joe Girardi just announced during his pregame press conference that he’s decided to play Eric Chavez as the DH for tonight, and the foreseeable future. Here’s the quotes:
@Ledger_Yankees Marc Carig
“We’re going to see how this works.” — Girardi on benching Posada.
@Ledger_Yankees Marc Carig
Posada “not happy” about being benched but admits he brought it on himself.
@BloggingBombers Mark Feinsand
Girardi: Yanks going to “try some different things” with Posada, so he’s not in the DH mix right now. Said his roster spot isn’t in trouble.
We all know he was already benched against left handers after the horrendous start he got off to, so to not play him against right handers has some pretty obvious implications. Apparently they’ll wait and see how Chavez fares before making a roster move, but Posada is one step closer to being released and Montero is one step closer to being called up. We all know Jorge has his share of detractors in the organization, and the GM and Manager have always had their share of issues with him, but I was hopeful a charter member of the ‘Core 4′ would at least be allowed to finish the season with the team. It hasn’t happened yet, but signs seem to be pointing in the direction where that doesn’t happen.
