Where's Marty Miller When You Need Him?
As you have all probably heard by now, Posada is going on the DL for the first time in his major league career. I thought about writing a post jokingly suggesting he'd been getting tips on how to stay healthy after signing a big contract from Carl Pavano, but Posada has been a great Yankee and deserves better. From what I've read, he seems genuinely distraught at the fact that he will have to go on the DL, and he was the first to mention that he had been given a good contract and feels like he's letting the team down. We'll be okay for now, the season is young and Molina is a more than able back up. Will he produce offensively like Posada? No, but neither would most human beings. I just hope we keep Moehler and he can come back to back up Molina. I don't know the extent of Posada's injury, but if he can come back this season than I rather he takes time off in April/May than in August/September. Feel better Posada.
