I was actually feeling sorry for Jorge Posada lately. First Andy Pettitte praised Jose Molina to the high heavens. Then Mike Mussina actually said Jose was the best catcher HE HAD EVER WORKED WITH. EVER. I don't need to point out that those are the two winningest Yankee pitchers this season. I also don't need to point out that our pitching has been a strong suit, despite the fact that three of our starters on opening day are injured. And who has been the primary catcher guiding all those pitchers this season? Jose Molina. Who have our two top pitchers given their stamp of approval to? Jose Molina. Who has worked with the bullpen that has been far better than expected? Jose Molina. But he doesn't bat .325 and he'll never be an All Star so in the moronic minds of the Yankees front office, that means we have a WEAKNESS at our catching position.
Yep, the catcher our pitchers LOVE is a weakenss and we better bench him and bring in someone new, namely Ivan Rodriguez because it's always a good idea to switch things up when things are running smoothly. Besides, am I the only who looks at Pudge and sees yet another steroid abuser? He has the classic late 90s bulge in his stats and Jose Canseco (who has been accurate on most every charge he made in his first book) fingered Pudge by name. Of course, the Yankees have a history of actively recruiting players they know are cheating like Jason Giambi and just don't give a damn if their World Series rings are juiced or not as long as the cash flows.
