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.

"They were impressive," said Posada. "The fans were awesome for this team and me."

La Posada 40 years spoke for 3 minutes and a half before and gently flowing away.

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.

"I am not willing to talk about winter right now," said Executive Director Brian Cashman, the Yankees. GM is also a contract, but is expected to return.

When the Tigers with the right-handed, Posada started each of the five playoff games.

"What he gave us in the playoffs, I do not think there's a proud moment that was George," Girardi said.

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."

It seems that Jorge Posada was not only Yankee who did not play Saturday night. News fainting Core Four teams ask more out of the lineup after being abandoned at the ninth player in the batting order weak field, but Josh Beckett and the Red Sox Yankees fairing so stressed many problems with a 6-0 beating at the Stadium.

CC Sabathia dominated early, but could not prevent the emergence Red Sox, who scored two runs in the fifth and four in the seventh. The rally has been crowned by a three-run homer by Adrian Gonzalez to pursue Sabathia - Joe Girardi started dirt and ejected by plate umpire Mike Winters, after changing his departure to David Robertson.

Yankees, managed by four of their seven hits and struck nine times against Beckett and his six innings before Matt Albers and Rich Hill in a record final nine outs. Beckett, who lowered his ERA to 1.75, was also launched eight scoreless frames against the Yankees on April 10 in Boston.

Despite opening the season 0-6, the Red Sox again moved within one game of .500. At 19-20, they won a game the Yankees from 20 to 17, who have lost four consecutive years for the first time in 2011.

With or without Posada Bombers seem to avoid a sweep of three games at home Sunday evening the series finale, in which Freddy Garcia is scheduled to oppose the ace left-hander Jon Lester.

"To play three games and the smell for two weeks and say," Well, we played well in three games, but we always play all the time, which is the bottom line, "Girardi soon 16:00 - about two hours before Posada asked out of the lineup, GM Brian Cashman hours. "I'm not too far in three games. If this is three games in September of 1915, could be a different story."

However, after the fall of the last two games against Kansas City earlier this week, then opens the series on Friday - and considering Posada and Girardi explosion, shortly before the first pitch - the Yankees certainly Sabathia ordered a bank need to solve their joint malfunction coup.

Sabathia, who won three of his last four starts, Beckett matched zeros through the first four races - including consecutive strikeouts of Gonzalez, Kevin Youkilis and David Ortiz with two runners in scoring position to end an early profit. The hat-trick of K, has started a stretch of 12 consecutive batters retired by Sabathia, who struck six in the first four innings.

The problem was that Beckett has also dominated the Yankees through four images aimlessly. Derek Jeter and Curtis Granderson opened the first house with singles, with the hit The Captain's th 2965 in his career. But as Sabathia (3-3) had made the previous half-inning, Beckett has increased dramatically with punch-out by Mark Teixeira and Robinson Cano wrapped around a menu error by Alex Rodriguez, who was 0 - for-4 with two strikeouts.

The Sox spent his first two points in the fifth. After Sabathia pitched a four-foot field of Jason Varitek - and Posada, a former recipient of the Stars is now batting ninth for the Red Sox - Jacoby Ellsbury tied a two-run double in the head by Brett Gardner on the left.

Andruw Jones, the last minute to replace Posada hole No.9, pulled one on a single through the shortstop hole in the fifth against Beckett, and Jeter followed with a walk. But Granderson him out Varitek and Beckett, once again fanned Teixeira. This will extend Teixeira is skid against the Red Sox hitless in 30 at-bats - including 19 this season - before he beat a harmless one-out only from the eighth.
