08:14 AM ET 10.07 | Jorge Posada's roller coaster of a season concluded on a somewhat personally redeeming note Thursday, a night that may have been his last in the Bronx. [Posada] hit well in September, earning him a spot on the postseason roster. But rather than focus on another playoff disappointment and his future, Posada instead gave credit to the Tigers' pitchers, and particularly their catcher, Alex Avila. ... But when someone asked him if he had any specific memories of his 16 years as a Yankee, his eyes, already bloodshot, began to well up. "I can't answer that," he said. "I gave it all on the field." With that, he put his hand up in front of his face as if to wave everyone off. "I'm sorry," he said in a choked voice.

Where is that Brooklyn punk this morning? I want to hear what he has to say about his beloved Yankees. I'm sure he'll have plenty if scheiss to talk today.

Certainly wasn't his fault. One can only hope they ship #13 off to Florida or Pittsburgh and still pay 80% of his salary to die the slow death he deserves.

I'm in too good of a mood to talk smack today. Heck, I even agreed with you in that other thread! :D

He will make a good DH for someone else for sure.

It's cool man, just didn't understand your animosity a few days back or whenever it was.

I hope this isn't Bernie Williams all over again...I hope Jose rides off into the sunset with the memories of hitting well in this series to sustain him. He had a helluva run with the Yanks, time to enjoy the family.
Whaddya think, better than Bill Dickey?

Hip Hip Jorge

My favorite chant from the Bleacher Creatures....
ge-JOR, ge-JOR, ge-JOR, ge-JOR....

Can't believe I typed "Jose" in my previous post, I suck.
