What are the Yankees thinking?!?

Today the Yankees optioned my favorite player to the minors. Francisco Cervelli was sent to Scranton Wilkes-Barre today after the Yanks traded for another catcher. I read he was quite stunned by the move. He has proven to be a capable backup catcher the last several years despite the fact he can't hit. He's not in the majors for his bat. He gave Jorge Posada and Russell Martin a day off at least once a week because of his glove work. I read the pitchers loved throwing to him.
You would think with manager Joe Girardi being a former catcher, he would have been againts this move. Something tells me this is a Brian Cashman decision.
