Hairston vs. Blalock....the reason no PH....

You all remember the AB where Hairston hit with 2 on 2 out down 6-2 in the bottom of the 8th with Farnsworth on the mound?

I exchanged some IM's with TR and he spoke to Wakamatsu about it last night.  

From my exchange.....and TR was telling me what Wakamatsu was using as his reasoning NOT TR's opinion...

**The Yankees have LHP Myers in the bullpen....If he brings up Blalock, they bring in Myers....Blalock is struggling against LHP.....also he is not the tying run....they are hoping Hairston can find a way to get on against Farnsworth with his speed and just putting the ball in play and get Matthews Jr. up to the plate....Better chance of Blalock batting in the 9th vs. Rivera with tying run on...they don't like Blalock vs. Myers at all**

So there you go...don't shoot the messenger.
