There is no other way to put it. The Angels bullpen, dominant during the team's 2002 World Series run and a force on each of the four division-winning clubs since 2004, is a mess right now. The latest meltdown came Friday night, when a trio of Angels relievers, including closer Brian Fuentes, blew a five-run eighth-inning lead in a 10-9 loss to the New York Yankees.

Yankees Manager Joe Girardi had the conversation with Jorge Posada on Sunday, a talk similar to one he had with Joe Torre when Posada was about to cut into Girardi's time behind the plate. Girardi didn't like it, and he didn't expect Posada to be excited about light-hitting Jose Molina catching A.J. Burnett in the postseason. "When I played here, we split guys during the playoffs," Girardi said Thursday. "Of course, you want to play every day. I wouldn't want a catcher who didn't want to play every day. That would bother me inside if the guy didn't want to play every day."

Tim Salmon, on the disabled list because of an inflamed left knee, received a cortisone injection Monday. He will be inactive for three days or so and hopes to resume a minor league assignment this weekend.... Yankee catcher Jorge Posada, who sat out four games after a throw by the Angels' Alfredo Amezaga broke his nose Wednesday, is expected to play tonight. But the Yankees may be without first baseman Jason Giambi, listed as day to day because of lower back spasms. -- Mike DiGiovanna
