Martinez became an integral part of the Yankees-Red Sox rivalry during his seven seasons with Boston. In the 2003 AL championship series, he tossed aside Don Zimmer when the then-72-year-old bench coach charged the mound during a bench-clearing incident.
In 2004, a frustrated Martinez said this after another loss to New York: "I just tip my hat and call the Yankees my daddy." Since then, he has been serenaded with chants of "Who's your daddy?" when he returns to the Bronx.
The Phillies made one change to their roster ahead of the Series, adding reliever Brett Myers and dropping infielder Miguel Cairo. Myers made one appearance against Colorado in the division series, walking two batters in two-thirds of an inning. Cairo was 0 for 5 in the postseason.
Girardi held off on revealing New York's roster on Tuesday. He might replace pinch runner Freddy Guzman with Hinske, who was active in the first round and would give him an extra bat on the bench. Reliever Brian Bruney also was in consideration.
