What a freakin' mess! I blame Cashman for not getting a real DH in the off-season... and that's why he's shooting his mouth off. Oh, yeah, and to show his bosses he's on their side, 'cause he sure threw his team under the bus. Oh, yeah, and helped them lose the game to boot. Posada should have taken extra batting practice & played hurt (mentally & physically); next time, dude, bend over during your stretches and go, "OW!" really loudly before you ask for down time. Jeez, after 17 years, you'd think he'd learned something.
If the reason he's not catching is because his arm can't throw out a base-stealer, but everything else still works, perhaps we need to measure those several outs against the train wreck that he is now. Maybe just let the guy catch batting practice & keep his arm & knees oiled. Or let him catch a game against some other oldsters. Oh, wait, that was last night. After this tawdry affair, Jorge's gonna be really messed up in the head. I hate it when that happens.
Olney seems to think it's the beginning of the end.
