• Posada’s Last Game?

    Posted by on October 4th, 2011 · Comments (1)

    Unless AJ Burnett comes up big today’s ALDS contest will be the last game Jorge Posada  ever plays for the Yankees.   If this is the case I’m hoping he goes out with a bang—say 2 for 3 with a walk.  And why not?  Thus far he’s 4 for 8 with 4 walks in this series with what I believe to be the only triple ever hit in the Post Season by a 40 year old player with over 1,500 career games caught.

    Vaya Con Dios, Jorge.  You will be sorely missed.

      The Jorge of old is missed; old Jorge…well, every player has his seasons in the sun, but the end must come. If he signs with another team, he might bounce back some, but I don’t see it. He’s declined for 2 years now, and 41 year-olds rarely bounce back once the decline sets in.

      He served the Yankees well for many years, but like Bernie, his time has come.
