Alternate universe ending for yesterday

So I was only following the game online and I'm happy to be contradicted here, but here goes anyway.  Why not lift Victor for Shoppach going to the bottom of the 8th?  With two outs in the 9th,Posada "stole" second on defensive indifference to get into scoring position.  I have to wonder if the game wouldn't have ended on a Shoppach throw to second in that case.  We were up 6 to 2.  This seems like the time to make defensive substitutions.  Maybe Posada got a great jump.  Maybe Shoppach would've thrown the ball to Grady.  Or maybe Shoppach would've bailed us out of that horrible, horrible ending.
