Jorge Posada Last Game With Yankees


Realizes that he probably played his last game as fillets, cut an emotional Jorge Posada short session of its support after the New York Yankees lost Game 5 of assistive listening devices, 3-2 to the Detroit Tigers. Tears came to my eyes when Posada was asked what the fans were meant to him.

In Game 5 loss, Posada went two-for-4. During the playoffs, he finished 6-for-14 (0429), which was the best on the Yankees. He had a .579 on base percentage.

"It was fantastic," said Yankees manager Joe Girardi, who also got emotional when talking about Posada. "He had a great career and I am sure he will play, and I do not know what to do."

Posada declined to say whether he believed it was his last game as a Yankee. Several times this year, he said he would consider playing for another team if the Yankees do not want him.

Posada, 40, ended his four-year contract for $ 52.4 million. Last winter, the Yankees moved Posada behind the plate, making him a part-time DH. Posada was under his at-bats in a season since 1997 non-injury.

His 344 regular-season-bats, has finished 14 houses and 44 RBI. In a game in May, we removed the most recent against the Boston Red Sox, when Girardi was hitting ninth. Later, during the period, Girardi him on the bench, but every time Posada struggled to earn playing time. He ended up picking up the game-winning hit in the Yankees' AL East-clinching win against the Red Sox last month.

Girardi added: "The heart that has shown throughout this series, because Jorge is a great player."

With the Yankees, who want to open the DH position as a resting place Alex Rodriguez, Derek Jeter and others - and with the appearance of Jesus Montero - the expectation is that Posada will not be offered a contract for 2012.

"Next year everything will be waiting for us all," Cashman said earlier in the week.

Cashman appreciates that Posada has meant more than the Yankees actually began his career at full capacity in 1997.

"And 'certainly one of the first fishermen in this generation," said Cashman. "It 'a Hall of Famer and the border is one of the best receivers in American history."

If Posada is actually finished in the New York Yankees closer Mariano Rivera will be sad to see his old friend and teammate, go.

"I definitely lacking, certainly miss him," said Rivera.

Meanwhile, the Yankees ACE CC Sabathia is faced with a decision to return to the Bronx next season. Sabathia, 31, has a withdrawal clause in its seven-year, $ 161 million contract he can use to be a free agent. From Spring Training Sabathia declined to say whether he will use the opt-out or not. Sabathia has four years and $ 92 million to his current contract.

After the Yankees lost, in which Sabathia in relief for the first time in his career, he said "many" will go into his decision, beginning with his family, and "all that matters."

"We just have to wait and see," said Sabathia.

Cashman has already pledged to keep Sabathia as a priority.

"He's our ace," Cashman said. "It occupies a prominent place."

Ready for the regular season at 19-8 with a 3.00 ERA Sabathia. Its 1 1 / 3 innings of relief on Thursday, gets to drive, which raised its series ERA 6.23 8 2 / 3 indoor interactive.

Sabathia earned his money so far. In 2009, his first season with the club, he led the Yankees as World Series by pitching on three days rest after the entire season. During his three seasons, Sabathia is 59-23 with a 3.18 ERA.

"I love it," Sabathia said when asked to play in the Bronx. "I loved from the first day I arrived here."

Sabathia has led the Yankees opt-out to help the fears that would come in the Bronx.

Equipment and Sabathia could work on an extension before Sabathia can negotiate with other teams after the World Series. Sabathia darkness fell at his club to watch the final of the season.

"It's fantastic," said Sabathia. "It's always difficult when you lose."
