Starting Jorge Posada at DH the right move

Since Jose Molina will be catching AJ Burnett in tomorrow's Game 5 start, Joe Girardi is considering starting Jorge Posada as the designated hitter. It's the right move. Jorge is swinging a hot bat while Hideki Matsui continues to struggle, hitting pop-ups and striking out with runners in scoring position and helping to kill several Yankee rallies.

I also think Nick Swisher has one more game to regain his swing. If the Yankees clinch a World Series berth tomorrow and Swish has another fruitless night, then Girardi will have to add Eric Hinske back to the roster. While everyone else has shown some signs of life (except maybe Robinson Cano), Swisher continues to struggle and may have to take a seat on the bench. You can't let one player drag down your entire offense.
