Because he is the only catcher in the league who is guaranteed to be in the playoofs each year.....he needs the extra rest so he can be productive come the fall.

Could be or maybe he's just not man enough to hang. :-b


If i were a mets fan..... I would never put "Catcher" and "Man enough" in the same sentence.

Good thing you're not a Mets fan, I guess. *shrug*

Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey

He isn't the only catcher lazing today.
You still got time, if you've got spare catchers to swap out Estrada, Martinez and LeCroy.
Blessed are the cheesemakers.

Whatever it is, it's contagious.

There was a cool article in TSN magazine about catchers and why it's such a tough position. Pretty much:
-Their knees hurt
-Hot days with all the gear on
-Foul tips hitting them
-Swollen left hand (from the fastballs)
-Home plate collsions and 58-foot splitters
-Remembering scouting reports
-Remember all the pitchers tendencies

Two things:

1: He didn't.
2: I didn't hear your insult over the ovation OUR catcher got as the most prolific HR hitting catcher in major league history last night.

Well, guess what? He is also not catching tomorrow... I guess... !+)

Joe Torre said before the game that he is - quote: a little bit beat up and needs some rest.

Also, they had a rookie on the mound today and I think Torre wanted a babysitter behind the plate... It's the same with Contreras (who is pitching tomorrow)... Flaherty calls much better games than Posada...

It's no wonder for me... also, maybe someone didn't notice... Posada is in a terrible 4-3 slump right now.

At this time your really not missing that much. ;-)

1.he was close...

2.Was that ovation bigger than the one he gets everynight from NY weatherman Sam Champion's pants?

Mike Piazza is the only Right handed switch hitting catcher in baseball...thats not a good thing :-t

The Contreras thing is true. They mentioned that on the broadcast of the game the other night. Posada will sit when Contreras starts for the foreseeable future.

Oh, relax. Was that second comment referring to his sexuality? He's NOT gay, that was created by the media... Come on, grow up.

I couldn't care less if he was anyway, he's the best hitting C of all time. Posada doesn't hold a candle.
