Girardi was apparently upset by a pitch that was called a ball, which came shortly before Adrian Gonzalez’ three-run homer made the score 6-0 in the seventh inning and chased CC Sabathia.
The Yankees, once again, are showing no signs of life with the bat, and have played sloppily in the field.
The mess with Jorge Posada, who removed himself from the lineup after being dropped to ninth in the batting order, set a bad tone for an evening that is turning ugly for the Yankees. They are en route to a fourth straight loss, and eighth defeat in 11 games.
Posada is scheduled to hold a post-game press conference, and that also promises to provide some fireworks.
