Why is it that these three headlines from MLB.com concern me? Here they are:
- Yanks to use Posada as DH during ALDS
- Girardi will rely on Burnett out of bullpen
- A-Rod pushing through nagging pains
I love Posada. But, it’s a shame not to get Montero’s bat in the line-up, somehow. He could be an X-Factor. He’s just too hot right now to sit. And, Burnett out of the bullpen has Jeff Weaver ’03 written all over it. Lastly, A-Rod…what can I say? If he’s not good to go, then, as crazy as it sounds, I’d rather have Chavez playing third. This is the post-season, and, a five game series. It’s not time to see if someone can or cannot play because of injuries and/or rust.
