• Posada Weighs In On Johan & Pettitte

    Posted by on November 29th, 2007 · Comments (3)

    From Pete Abe -

    Where it got interesting was when [Jorge] said the Yankees should trade for Johan Santana because they need a No. 1. Posada also said he has been calling Andy Pettitte once a week.

    He said Pettitte is leaning to retirement but he hopes that will change given the direction of the team.

    Pretty interesting comment from Jorge here regarding needing a number one.

    And, regarding Pettitte, well, what can I say? It’s not too late to reach out to Andy, if you haven’t already.

      I guess Jorge doesn’t think highly of Wang, Moose or the kids. I don’t totally blame him, but I suppose I’d be a bit more politic about it.

      When it comes to trading young players or prospects, virtually every aging veteran is a selfish knave. I think that explains Posada’s comment.

      Jorge should follow DJ’s lead on trades and acquisitions….smile, speak freely, say absolutely nothing. If no trade happens, he’ll have to work with and develop these young guys. The pitcher-catcher relationship has to be based on trust. More like a marriage than anything else. He can glow all he wants about Santana, but just leave it as something like “Any team would be lucky to have him.”
