At one point this afternoon, I turned to Sam and asked if I should take a picture of the Yankees stretching and then post it to the blog with a note reading, “This is what happened today.”
Reality is, there wasn’t a lot going on during this afternoon’s workout at Yankee Stadium. We got some more comments about the Molina/Burnett/Posada triangle, but nothing outrageous. Posada said he’s not “jumping for joy” but seemed at peace with the whole thing, Molina said he’s happy to be playing and Joe Girardi said the decision is his and he’ll have to live with it. All of that seemed fair enough.
Girardi wouldn’t give us anything definitive about tomorrow’s lineup, but he strongly suggested Hideki Matsui will DH and Melky Cabrera will play center field. Barring some sort of Jerry Hairston shocker, that leaves the lineup fairly predictable.
I wish there were some sort of big, breaking news to report, but it’s probably best for the Yankees that today was a fairly quiet day at the stadium.
You can bet it will be loud again tomorrow.
