Jorge Posada Can Cash In

As per Andy of the Stat of the Day blog at baseball-reference.com, our favorite catcher without a chin is having the best season ever by a 35-year-old catcher. Take that, Carlton Fisk! Also notable from Andy:

"I can only assume that they did not go after Teixeira because they expect to be able to resign Posada and play him largely at 1B next year (where he has appeared in 18 games previously in his career.)"
Interesting. I like this idea, as does commenter Handride.(via Bronx Banter)

It's hard to imagine Posada not playing for the Yanks.

Thanks for the link to the post.
