Posada sitting today

Postby mikey » Sat May 22, 2004 12:13 pm

I just read in SPortingNews that Posada is sitting today. No injury, just a regular day off.

Anyone who might have picked up a back up catcher last week when Posada broke his nose might want to insert your back up if you need the offense (I picked up Estrada and never got around to dropping him, so he's starting for me today).

Good luck.

You'd think Torre would be smart and start Posada at DH since he IS the Yankees best hitter (so far).

The New York Daily News reported that Torre said he started 4 days in a row and wanted to give him a day off. :-?

AL teams tend not to like to start catechers in the DH spot if they only carry two catchers on the roster -- if the starting catcher goes down and the DH one has to go behind the playe the team loses the DH for the remainder of the game and pitchers/pinch hitters have to hit.
