Posada: Molina to catch Burnett

NEW YORK — We’ll see later this afternoon if Yankee manager Joe Girardi confirms what catcher Jorge Posada told reporters today — that Jose Molina will catch A.J. Burnett in the American League Division Series.

Posada and Burnett have not always been on the same page when the two have teamed up this season.

That would seem to take Posada’s bat out of the lineup for at least one game as Hideki Matsui has been the DH.

The Yankees are currently working out here at Yankee Stadium. Girardi, tomorrow’s starter CC Sabathia, and first baseman Mark Teixeira will address the media at a press conference starting at 3:45 p.m.
