Tough News For Beloved Yankee Player

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TXlUS5-ag_g

Sitting on the bench can’t be the way anyone wanted to see Posada’s 17-year career with the Yankees end. But he’s not being released, presumably to avoid clubhouse drama. And there’s plenty more baseball to be played, including the postseason. Posada was hitting decently against right-handers, with a .263/.340/.438 average and all nine of his home runs. Maybe he has some contributions left to make this season.

Meh. If they don't bring up Montero, this move is meaningless. A DH platoon of Jones and Chavez won't be much better.

From the headline I assumed this was about Alex Rodriguez.
