Posada and Rivera together again?

Austin Romine made his second big league start behind the plate this afternoon, and he caught the first eight innings. He was out there when Bartolo Colon struggled, and he was out there when the Yankees bullpen tossed four scoreless innings to bridge the gap to Mariano Rivera.

But when Rivera entered in the ninth, Russell Martin came off the bench do the catching.

Did Joe Girardi consider sending Jorge Posada out to catch Rivera’s record-tying save? Would he consider it for the record-breaker?

“You think about it,” Girardi said. “We’ve got a one-run game there, and Jorge’s only caught six innings this year. We’ll see.”
