Pitching: RHP A.J. Burnett.
Girardi shook it up, benching Swisher and using Hairston based on his past (and long ago) success against Pedro. Meanwhile, he is sitting Posada for personal catcher Jose Molina.
If Burnett doesn’t pitch well again and the Yankees aren’t able to generate enough offense to win, Girardi is going to get roasted in New York. But this is consistent with how he has managed all season given his fealty to past performance numbers regardless of sample size.
