The New York Times recently ran a revealing piece on Pete Rose. The all-time hits leader is creeping back into baseball through the back door — the media. He’s part of a three-headed think tank on Fox Sports 1.
Jorge Posada says he was “cornered” into a headline-grabbing response about his friend and former teammate Alex Rodriguez.
If Jorge Posada’s comments got to Rodriguez on Wednesday, he wasn’t showing it.
While Posada’s remarks about A-Rod could blow over, his long and bitter rivalry with Martinez isn’t about to end anytime soon.
In an interview with “CBS This Morning,” the former Yankees catcher made it clear he thinks Hall voters should continue to keep the cheaters out of Cooperstown.
I guess Butch Wynegar wasn’t available. The Yankees, who wear the most celebrated uniform on Earth, are handing out plaques like popcorn during a doubleheader.
The Yankees are retiring the uniform numbers of Andy Pettitte, Jorge Posada and Bernie Williams and will honor the trio with plaques in Monument Park this season along with Willie Randolph.
Those teams were bubbling with borderline greats. Do any deserve to hop that opaque line between memorable and immortal?
Continuing with our weekly rankings of the best local athletes by jersey/uniform number, here are numbers 29-20.
I asked those who played alongside, managed or coached Jeter along the way for a favorite story or memory, something that stood out when they thought of the captain. This is what they told me…
It’s not hard to call up images of a 20-something Jeter and look back on his career. But for those who have spent time with him up close, they have a database that can’t be Googled.
Playing catcher in New York City is about more than balls and strikes and strikeouts. Just ask Posada. Too stubborn to assimilate. Too flawed for the Hall of Fame. Too talented to ignore.
There will be many words spoken and written about Derek Jeter between now and the end of this season. I’m not sure anybody will say it any better than “Core Four” member Jorge Posada.
Yankees fans will have at least 80 more chances — hopefully — to say goodbye to Derek Jeter. But the first had a special feel to it, thanks to some old friends.
Before the Yankees’ home opener on Monday against the Orioles at 1:05 p.m., the “Core Four” of Derek Jeter, Mariano Rivera, Andy Pettitte and Jorge Posada will be reunited on the field.
