I can see it happening...
Well, i thought to myself recently... Joe Girardi is in great shape... maybe he could get back behind the plate for a few innings if he wanted to (we all saw him in the Yankees old timers day, not bad).
Now, what would happen if Jorge Posada gets injured... obviously the Yankees would substitute in Jose Molina (in the same game ofcourse). But what happens if Jose Molina gets injured...? Most teams would put in an infielder to take the role as the catcher, or someone who maybe tried out the position in highschool. But i don't see Joe Girardi not stepping up and saying... "get me the gear... i'm going in."
He's in great shape, he could still play the position if he wanted to, i can't see him not going in if the Yankees needed him.
Ofcourse i don't know how a situation like this works... or whether the Yankees would be allowed to do something like this.
All i know is, Girardi is a young manager and he can still get it done. How dramatic would it be... to see Girardi getting behind homeplate for an inning if the Yankees needed him to? I've heard of coaches playing before, which is why i bring this up, but obviously the game is different now, and this probably wouldn't be allowed.
Anyway, i was bored and i'm trying to cope with my Giants playing pooorly right now... so...
