So You’re Telling Me There’s (Not) A Chance?


A bit of sad news comes from Mark Feinsand on twitter tonight: Jorge Posada said he still hasn’t decided if he will play in 2012 but he feels there isn’t “even a percentage of a chance that [he] can come back” to the Yankees.

He added:

It’s a business. You look back and you wish there were some things that could have gone different, but they didn’t.

The only positive is that he seems to be handling it like a champ:

There’s nothing I could control. Everything happened for a reason. I’m not bitter at the Yankees. I’m not bitter at Brian Cashman.

I guess that’s good. It would be a shame if all he had accomplished in pinstripes was tainted due to a bitter exit/hard feelings.

The catcher said that even though he’s been contacted by about five or six teams he’ll always be a Yankee. He feels he could still be a backup catcher/DH:

I will always be a Yankee. It would be tough to put on another uniform for real, to learn another set of rules and all that stuff.

If I have to be a backup catcher, I can do that. I can play first, I can come off the bench.

Posada’s wife, Laura, chimed in when Jorge was asked about playing for a new team:

We live in Miami so…we love Miami. Nice transition.

Paging Ozzie Guillen and the Marlins…

It would’ve been nice to see Georgie return as a bench player but it seems like that is a pipe dream. If he still wants to play I wouldn’t hold it against him if he goes to another team. I’ll always root for him — even if he goes to the Red Sox. Yeah, I said it.

    I’ve met Laura Posada (though not Jorge), and she’s as nice as she is stacked. But I’ve also heard she’s really protective of Jorge and “excommunicates” people who attack him. She actually un-friended Lisa Swan, the co-author of the Subway Squawkers blog, on Facebook, for ripping Jorge when he was batting about .145. Jorge and Ozzie Guillen might work, but Laura and Ozzie may be an explosion waiting to happen.

      I’ve heard that Laura Posada is very nice in person. She comes across as very pleasant on twitter and, from what I’ve heard, on facebook too. My only gripe with her is that she acts like she’s Jorge’s publicist. I remember when we had the whole saga of Jorge asking out of the lineup against the Sox she was tweeting things about the situation. I’m not a fan of that. Then again, if it doesn’t bother Jorge it shouldn’t bother me.

      As for Ozzie, I can see that being a disaster if Laura is protective of Jorge. As we all know, Ozzie doesn’t mince words.

      Even though Laura said they love Miami, I could see him going to an AL team like the O’s or Rays. I also wouldn’t be shocked if he went to an NL team like the Giants. Not that I’m basing that on anything, just a guess. As usual I’ll probably be wrong. @MichaelPacholek
