Let’s just jump right into this. There are two main reasons why the Yankees shouldn’t release him:
1. Money. Jorge Posada will make $13.1MM in 2011. Obviously, some of that is already paid but there’s still a good deal of time and money left on that. The Yankees (and all other teams, really) should not [...]
I touched on this briefly at different points throughout the offseason on stuff like this, but now that MLBTR has released their Yankees 2012 contract issues post, I figured I’d expand my thoughts.
It’s always fun to look at how some things stack up side by side, or how results and process compare. So today, I’m going to take a few things about the Yankees–and their individual players–and compare them to things like perception or past results. Let’s start off on the team level. (Disclaimer: All statistics accurate [...]
In the wake of Posada-gate this weekend, more details are emerging of exactly what went down, and what the Yankee response would have been. I’ll start with a Tweet from Buster Olney
Bottom line on the whole Posada thing: This episode will accelerate his departure from the team unless he starts [...]
Lost in the uproar over the details surrounding Jorge Posada‘s absence from Saturday’s game is one over looked, important fact: This is a good thing. Jorge is expensive. Jorge is 39 years old. Jorge has a .276 wOBA and a 71 OPS+ so far this season. The cold, hard truth is that Posada is [...]
What’s going to happen if Jorge Posada continues to struggle? Throw away the mental stuff from this weekend for a second and let’s talk purely physical struggles. If the hits don’t start falling, there’s no way the Yankees can justify running him out there every day. I have to acknowledge this weekend, though, [...]
This story has become so all encompassing today, I thought it would be best to let each of our writers weigh in with their own unique take on the topic. Part of the idea behind assembling a blog is getting a diverse group of writers, each with their own point of view and writing style. [...]
Any Yankee fan with a television or internet connection knows by now what happened last night with Jorge Posada. He arrived at the ballpark yesterday and saw that he was batting 9th, and initially seemed (at least publicly) to have no issue with it. Then he “threw a hissy fit” in the managers office [...]
Thus far in 2011, two Yankees legends have shown their age and performed in a manner that suggests their time as effective major league hitters is over. Derek Jeter and Jorge Posada have struggled to have a consistent impact offensively, with Jorge showing an inability to make consistent contact [...]
Not many here need reminding, but I’m a huge Jorge Posada fan. After he retires, I’ll be at the front of the line, beating the drum for his Hall of Fame induction. That is a long shot at best, but it’s a cause I think is worth attempting to lead. Another point you [...]
