Jorge Posada on joining Marlins: ‘Perfect timing’

JUPITER, Fla. (AP) — A black cap with the Miami Marlins’ new neon logo sat atop Jorge Posada’s graying hair Monday, a jarring sight for fans who recall he spent his entire playing career with the New York Yankees.

But Posada switched allegiances to return to the majors, and he’s at spring training as a special adviser to his close friend and former teammate, Marlins CEO Derek Jeter.

“Perfect timing,” Posada said Monday. “Derek approached me sometime in January and said, ‘Do you want to get back in the game?’ I said, ‘Yeah!’”

Based on this, it would appear that Jorge Posada can out-deadpan Steven Wright.

World Series trophy broken by flying beer can, now fixed

We wrote yesterday about how Mookie Betts had a bit of trouble catching an inbound beer can during the Red Sox’ World Series parade. That can, it seems, was not the biggest problem.

Other fans on the parade route threw cans at players and Red Sox officials, with at least six getting arrested for disorderly conduct. One of them was nabbed after hitting a team photographer, Jason Varitek’s wife and Alex Cora’s daughter. None of them were hurt.

The same cannot be said for the World Series trophy, which took some damage, right to the pennants

You’d think that it was made of stronger stuff, but no….
