New York Yankees: After Another Awful Loss to Boston, a Call for a Roster Move

Bernadette PasleyContributor IAugust 8, 2011

The Yankees just completed a 5-2 road trip, but it feels like they went 2-5. They are only one game out of first place, but it feels like 10 games. They are virtually assured of a playoff spot, but it feels like it is in jeopardy.

This is the way things feel when the Yankees lose two out of three to the Red Sox and 10 of 12 overall this season.

Perhaps I wouldn't feel this bad had the Yankees been blown out last night. But the game was almost won and it slipped away.

To make matters even worse, today is an off day. The proverbial page can't be turned until tomorrow night.

Tomorrow night, the Angels come to town. I don't know the pitching matchups, but it appears that Ivan Nova will start one of the games. 

Yes, he's still on the roster. At least as I write this he is.

So is Jorge Posada, although he's just taking up space at this point. I applaud Joe Girardi's decision to bench him. This is tough to say, but he should be released. Let him go and call up Jesus Montero.

It's time.

Thanks, Jorge. It's been fun.
