Easy there, Jorge


If nothing else, Posada has a real nose for baseball

If nothing else, Posada has a real nose for baseball

I’ve had some time to digest last night’s whole Jesse Carlson-Jorge Posada fiasco, and here’s the conclusion I’ve drawn: Posada is an even bigger bum then I thought he was all these years. You could read his lips after Carlson threw behind him — “You don’t want to do that.” Do what? The ball didn’t even hit him. Aaron Hill was drilled in the back with a fastball. Two weeks ago, Randy Ruiz was hit in the face. Retaliation is a part of the game — Posada, a veteran, should know that more than anyone. If he doesn’t want to be thrown at, he should tell his September call-up teammates to stop going after opposing hitters in blowouts, which happen to be the only type of games Mark Melancon and (sad to say) Josh Towers are capable of pitching in.

Posada is a great catcher — one of the best of our generation. Apparently that makes him bigger than the game, if you ask him. Maybe it’s just the typical Yankee attitude, which is unwarranted considering they’ve choked eight straight years despite having the league’s deepest pockets. Anyway, I’m really hoping either Posada, A-Rod or Derek Jeter wears a fastball between the numbers tonight. I’m not counting on it, but it would make my day.
