Poll Results: Posada Deserved BenchingPosted: August 15, 2011
The results are in and according to the fans, benching Jorge Posada was the right decision. Last Sunday, Posada was told by Girardi that he was going to the ride the bench for an indefinite period of time. Posada currently sports a .237/.314/.387 batting line and that is after a big 3 for 5 day on Saturday, one in which he hit a Grand Slam and drove in six runs. Posada is penciled in for tonight’s game as well so it looks like as long as he’s hitting, he will be the designated hitter. Hopefully, he the benching lit a fire under him and he can get hot for the playoff run.
Make sure you vote on the new poll: Will Jesus Montero be called up before September?
