LATEST:  As most have probably heard by now, Brett Myers has replaced Miguel Cairo on the Phils roster, as the Phils go back to 12 pitchers.  I’m fine with keeping Bruntlett over Cairo, as he gives you better speed and defense.  Meanwhile, the Yankees have also added a pitcher to their roster to go to 12.  Hard-throwing righty Brian Bruney is on the roster, along with pinch-hitter Eric Hinske, who Phillies fan remember well, as he struck out to end the World Series last year as a member of the Rays.  The Yankees left catcher Francisco Cervelli off the roster, which might signal that Jorge Posada will catch A.J. Burnett in Game 2.  I know the only reason that Cervelli was on the roster for the first two rounds of the playoffs was so they could hit for Molina with Posada late in the game and still have another catcher on the bench.  With no Cervelli on the roster, it will be interesting to see if Joe Girardi still goes with Molina in Burnett’s starts.
