Hip Hip, Jorge!
Midterm exams are over! Yay! This past week was…..not fun. The only good thing that came out of it was that now we are closer to Yankees baseball. Only 65 more days until Opening Day. I can’t wait! It’s been awhile since my last post. This one is for Cat who said she has been checking here everyday, waiting for something new. Sorry Cat….blame my school!
Midterm exams (especially calculus) have made me pretty cranky. The Yankee I miss most right now is the crankiest of the Yankees. I miss Jorge Posada.
Jorge Posada has been a Yankee for as long as I can remember. As of right now, Jorge is a career .277 hitter. From behind the plate, that’s pretty impressive. He was always one of my favorites back in the day around 1998. And now, he’s one of the Core 4; the 4 players who were part of that magical team. I’m positive that Jorge will end his remarkable career with these Yankees.
Let me just say this so everyone knows for sure: I love Jorge Posada. Sometimes I pick on him and all that, but I still love him. I just love Francisco Cervelli, too. And besides, sometimes Jorge needs to be yelled at. He himself has quite the temper. Jorge has gotten into quite a few brawls in his MLB career. He has one special rivalry that I’m sure we all are aware of…
Eeew it’s Pedro…I can understand why he hates this sleazy bum…
The Posada-Pedro animosity thing is classic. I admired Jorge for standing up to Pedro. (the little coward….pushing down a cute old man like Don Zimmer? Jorge should’ve ripped his lungs out.)
I had the privilege of watching the 2009 World Series (which, by the way, my babies won) and getting to see Jorge and Pedro face off as enemies again. This is an image I really enjoy:
I love this…Pedro, right there, watching the Yankees score, and having Posada, right there, rubbing it in. Aw, Pedro….are you gonna cry? STILL YOUR DADDY!
Alright this is the “I Miss Jorge” post, not the “I Hate Pedro” one…I should do that sometime! Anyways, back to Posada. Here is a montage of Jorge at his crankiest:
Taking out a Red Sock….
Lol…he looks a little annoyed.
This year against the Blue Jays on September 15th, Jorge was at his absolute crankiest. He was thrown behind, and he completely lost it…
Jorge’s temper is actually a reason why I like him so much. Jorge doesn’t take bull from anyone. He is always there, ready to defend himself or his Yankee teammates. Jorge will always be remembered amongst Yankee fans. Aside from being a classic Yankee, Jorge also made history. He was the first player to hit a home run in the breathtakingly-beautiful new Yankee Stadium.
Jorge, you do have your moments, but you are a great Yankee.
Enjoy the rest of your offseason. You start your season on February 17th!
