Yankee bats went cold on Saturday night as they were defeated by the Indians, 3-1.
Jorge Posada’s decline has only left the Yankees with one option and that’s to waive goodbye to the former Yankee hero. With Alex Rodriguez soon returning, there isn’t anyone but Posada who should make way for him on their roster.
Eric Chavez may be a forgotten man to some but he can fill multiple areas of need for the Yankees when he returns from the disabled list. He can bridge the gap at third base while A-Rod is recovering and spell Mark Teixeira at first base.
The New York Yankees’ roster is seriously lacking in depth and it’s up to general manager Brian Cashman to play catch-up to the superior Boston Red Sox. There are many needs that Cashman must address as the trade deadline approaches.
A.J. Burnett took a steady first step as he aims to bounce back from a wobbly season and Mark Teixeira hit his second three-run homer in two games, sending the New York Yankees to a 10-6 victory over the Detroit Tigers on Saturday.
