From Jim Baumbach (Newsday):
When Jeter was asked about a half hour ago if it’s going to be “weird” for him not having Posada behind the plate for a playoff game, he looked down and took several seconds to think of the right response.
“I mean it will be kind of awkward not having [...]
AJ Burnett was interviewed before last night’s game about (what else) the fact that Jose Molina will be catching him instead of Jorge Posada. He denied that he requested such a move and said it was completely manager Joe Girardi’s decision. Here’s the story:
A.J. Burnett has earned the Yankees’ Game 2 assignment for [...]
From Erik Boland:
ON IF TOLD WHO WILL CATCH AJ: “Molina’s probably going to catch A.J. (pause). So, that’s it.”
ON IF IT BOTHERS HIM: “I just hope we win that game, that’s all. That’s all I got to say.”
ON IF HE’LL DH THAT DAY: “I don’t know. Matsui’s our DH, so we’ll [...]
To me, the story of last night’s Yankee game wasn’t CC Sabathia going after his 20th Win, or the way the Yankee bullpen (esp Robertson and Hughes) imploded after his exit. The biggest story from last night’s game was the minute Girardi made out his lineup card. Jose Molina was inserted at DH in order [...]
A.J. Burnett has a 3.09 ERA over his last 5 starts. During the course of those 32 innings, he has struck out 37 batters while walking 14. It’s certainly been an impressive way to end the regular season, as Burnett seems to have figured it out at the right time. Even more impressive is that [...]
From Jon Heyman (SI):
It’s become obvious that Jose Molina is CC Sabathia‘s personal catcher, though no one’s admitted it yet. Sabathia, by the way, hit 98 on the gun Sunday night. He gets better as he goes, it seems. While he’s supposedly not having a great year, he leads the AL in wins [...]
From Anthony McCarron (Daily News):
Despite his numbers, Matsui’s status with the Yankees is unclear. He is in the final season of a four-year, $52 million contract and the Yankees want to get younger and free up at-bats at designated hitter for Jorge Posada.
Matsui would not delve too deeply into his future Sunday.
From Marc Carig (Star-Ledger):
While Jose Molina didn’t appear in Tuesday’s 5-3 Yankees victory against the Blue Jays, he might have made a call that figured significantly in the outcome.As Chris at The Yankee Universe astutely pointed out a few days ago, Molina has worked well with Andy Pettitte. So, before the game, [...]
Has anyone noticed just how effective Andy Pettitte has been lately?
In his last 3 starts, Andy has pitched 20 innings (nearly 7 innings per outing). His ERA is 2.70 and his FIP is 1.86 (his ERA should be lower) while his WHIP is 0.95. He has struck out 23 hitters during those 20 innings [...]
Andy Pettitte had one of his best games of the season last night, and Jose Molina was behind the plate. Pettitte had this to say after the game:
Pettitte hadn’t thrown his cutter very often over his last couple of starts, he said, but [...]
