Bad news, folks: the Yanks are going to be without their catcher for a lot longer than all of us had hoped.

Last week Jorgie checked into the DL Resort for the first time in his illustrious career; his "dead shoulder" (whatever that means... if I didn't know better I'd almost think it sounded suspicious) had finally gotten the best of him. He was only put on the 15-day DL, leading us to believe that he just needed a short rest and that he'd be back in no time at all. Sadly, that proved to be false - it's now being reported that he'll need at least 5 weeks to get back in shape.

Sigh. He was having a good start to the season, batting .302 with 11 RBI in 18 games, and with the way Giambi and Cano are hitting (or NOT hitting, more accurately) his bat was really needed in the lineup. Unfortunately, his replacement Jose Molina isn't providing even close to the production the Yanks were likely to get out of Posada - he's batting a sad .218 with an even sadder .214 OBP. Interesting, his backup catcher Chad Moeller is actually doing well, hitting .333 in 7 games, so I suppose it's nice to at least have a decent backup.

He's no Posada, though.

    I'd have to think 5 weeks is better than losing him for the whole season.

    At least he'll be fresh for the end of the season. But for some reason, I remain skeptical that he'll be back in five weeks. If he is back at least back for all star break, that would still be better than the whole season. But if he can only catch 5 innings, and teams are probably going to run on him alot since he is having problems with his rotar cuff. I am imagine that he is going to be DHing alot this season.

    Just curious. Is it possible to have an OBP less than his batting average?
