Top Ten Tuesdays: Bernie Is Getting Jealous
Tuesday, November 13, 2007
Now that Jorgie Porgie's spot on the team has been secured for the next 4 years and all indications point to a 3 year deal for Mo, we can effectively stop worrying about those two roster spots and instead start thinking about what we're going to do with those old dudes in the last years of their respective contracts. Jorgie will be 40 when his contract ends and Mariano will be close to 41, old by any baseball standards (unless you're on the juice, or are Roger Clemens or are Roger Clemens on the juice) but especially ancient for catchers and closers. It's possible that they'll both still be able to play well at that old age, but it is more likely that the Yanks will have to find something else for them to do. I've got some ideas...

Top Ten Things Mo and Jorgie Can Do In Their Final Contract Year
10) Make daily calls to Tampa Bay to see if they will sign them once they're done with the Yanks
9) No longer afraid of not being re-signed, begin telling Steinbrenner what an ass he is. Constantly.
8) Run the stadium tours while the team is out of town (because the team surely won't be taking them on the road trips)
7) Whiskey.
6) Tell stories to the youngsters about the olden times when they had to walk uphill in the snow 2 miles each way to the stadium every day.
5) Taunt Bernie by repeatedly asking him where HE is playing this year
4) Embrace new role of "token Yankee veteran" at public affairs with gusto.
3) Botox parties!!!
2) Start campaigning for coaching jobs in LA with Torre
1) Enjoy lavish retirement parties and gifts, and then un-retire.

    I can't understand why Mo hasn't yet signed this offer. It seems to be more than generous compensation both for what he'll do, AND for what he's done. If he does decide to join Joe in LA, is that such a bad thing for the Yanks? I think not. The age factor is huge. He was more than shaky at times this year, and he'll be (gulp) 41 at the end of this deal.
    If he decides to leave all this money on the table, Joba ends up as the closer for 10 years or so, instead of in the rotation for who knows how long? (I'll bet the Cubs wish now that they had put Kerry Wood in the closer spot way back when). I want Mo to sign, but it won't be the end of the world if he doesn't.

    I'm dissappointed with you Yankees Chick...Posada just came off of a career year, one he likely will not repeat but he can indeed play a large role in the future as a DH.

    Let's not forget how thin the free agent market is this year, ESPECIALLY for catchers. Would you rather have Molina in the starting lineup?

    Who else better to work with the young pitchers than Posada? He is will liked by the pitching staff and will no doubt make an impact.

    As for Rivera. I'm skeptical about him. he's obviously on the decline.

    Why disappointed in me, Joe?? I love Posada - I wholeheartedly support this move. It was a great move for the team and for Jorgie.

    He'll still be an old man though :)

    Posada is a .277 hitter he won't get better he was great because Matsui and Damon was injuried and pitchers avoiding A-Rod had to pitch to Posada....Posada got the sloppy seconds pitches:)


    Bernie sowhere playing Jazz then helping this team.
