Posada out for the year


Jorge Posada has decided to have season-ending surgery. The decision was apparently prompted by the fact that the newly acquired Nady provides a good right-handed bat, and by the pain Jorgie experienced while attempting batting practice today.

I love Posada, but I have a feeling the Yankees signed him to too long a contract. Catchers don't age well, and he's not a spring chicken. Even though he was converted to catching relatively late in his career, four years was probably too long.

I guess this means Chad Moeller's job is safe. I like Moeller, who was a Red last season. (The "Nicest Guy In The World," Trent calls him). If someone has to wear Bubba's #19, I don't mind that it's him.

Andy Phillips continues to get maybe one at-bat a few times a week as a pinch-hitter. He got a walk yesterday, and was 0 for 1 today. He's batting .154.

I really don't like the way Dusty uses him. He's not getting to use his glove at all. Dusty's pinch-hitting him against lefties, when he hits righties better than lefties. Andy needs more playing time than he's getting.
