As I watch Jorge Posada live on the 1nterstate while serving as the New York Yankees, um…, well…, “designated HITTER” (much for irony?), I am left asking myself one simple question:

Exactly what does Posada have to DO to finally lose his job???

Sucking every single day hasn’t been enough to cost Posada his job.

Throwing a tantrum in the manager’s office hasn’t been enough to cost Posada his job.

Even QUITTING ON THE TEAM and causing a MAJOR distraction hasn’t been enough to cost Posada his job.

Hell, after that tantrum/quitting/distraction thing, the Yankees not only refused to take a stand with Posada (who balked at being asked to bat 9th), they actually CAVED to him! The next time Jorge hits 9th this season will be the FIRST!

UN-FREAKIN’-BELIEVABLE! And a real nice message to send to the rest of the team, too.

By the way, in case you haven’t been paying attention, the Yankees currently have a big slugger at Triple-A who is pounding the ball FLAT on a nightly basis. No, I’m not talking about Jesus Montero.

I’m talking about Jorge Vazquez (29) who hit his 18th home run of the season for Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Thursday night. To go along with those 18 bombs (in only 43 games), Vazquez has 45 RBI, a .303 avg. and an OPS of .984!

Yet NONE of those things… Hell, for that matter, ALL of those things, is still not enough to cost Jorge Posada his job.

So just exactly how do the planets have to align for Posada to be replaced???

More troubling still, if the Yankees refuse to stand up to Posada, despite EVERYTHING screaming that they should, what are the chances they will EVER stand up and do the right thing with Captain Crap?
