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.
