He's never been on the DL in his career. But of course, the one year I draft him he probably will be. :-b

Will Carroll on this:

Jorge Posada (0 DXL)
"Barking." If I hadn't heard the term before, I would have thought that Brian Cashman just wanted to hear Erin Andrews say it on air. The term is one of those like "tweak" that gets used for soreness, stiffness, and/or swelling. Posada's shoulder is bothering him and it's no more or no less important than that. Joe Girardi and the team decided to play it safe and keep Posada out against A.J. Burnett, a pitcher he's had limited success against anyway. The most worrisome part is that this soreness is coming so soon into the season. If this was July, I'd barely take note of this, waving it off with a simple "he's an older catcher, what do you expect?" If Posada's dealing with one of those things, then we'll all look back on this as what it was, a good opportunity to take a day off. If, however, this is the first sign of something—and I'll go on record that I don't think it is—then we'll at least know where it started. One thing I will do is slightly reduce my expectations for him on his playing time. This goes with Joe Girardi's history both as and in using a backup catcher.

Jorge's fine. He's just old. Damn old. I have no clue how he's kept his production up and never gone on the DL all these years.

When Moses parted the Red Sea, Jorge Posada got pissed because it interrupted his fishing trip.

Well, I guess I spoke too soon. Jorge's going in for an MRI tomorrow to try to find the cause of his "dead arm," according to ESPN.

Jorge says that he's fine and is having no hitting difficulty, only throwing. Still, this early in the season, I'd be surprised to see Jorge not going on the DL and resting up for two weeks. With only Jose Molina as the backup, you don't want to risk Jorge playing hurt and doing further damage.
