ph_120691.jpgAssuming he doesn’t play today, Jorge Posada will finish the season at .338 with 20 home runs, 90 RBI and 91 runs scored.

Only two catchers in history have ever had such a season.

Mike Piazza (1997) went .362, 40, 124, 104.

Bill Dickey (1936) went .362 22, 107, 99.

Piazza was 28 and Dickey 29. Posada is 36. His season, in that context, is truly historically significant.
