The Truth About Posada
Just ran across The Wave’s article on Jorge Posada after a Google search. And, I have to say, FINALLY! Someone articulated what I’ve been saying since day one of the Posada era. To put it bluntly: the guy is a lousy catcher.
I could never understand why no one ever mentioned the fact that he absolutely refused to block the plate. I was further baffled when people referred to him as part of the Yankees “Core Four.” This, too, was nonsense. The core four in my mind will always be Mariano, Jeter, Pettitte and Bernie Williams. I even think of Girardi contributing more to the WS victories than Posada.
I’m just so happy to read the truth.
