I’ll have more later, but real quickly…

Joe Girardi had a conversation with Jorge Posada this afternoon, telling Posada that the Yankees are going with their best lineup and Posada’s at-bats could diminish. Posada had already fallen into a platoon situation at DH, but it now seems that Girardi prefers to have both Eduardo Nunez and Eric Chavez in the lineup against right-handers.

“We’re going to see how this works,” Girardi said. “We’re going to try some different things. We’ll see how this works, and I told Jorge, ‘You’re still going to be a big part of this, and we’re going to need you. We’re just going to do some different things.’”
