The view from behind the plate

Jorge Posada is one of those people who usually makes it easy to tell what he’s thinking or feeling. Unlike his buddy, Derek Jeter, Posada isn’t afraid to show when he’s disappointed. It’s just who he is.

Last night, Posada was frustrated. One game into the season obviously isn’t a time to be calling teammates out or getting too worked up about anything, really, but it was obvious in talking to Posada that he felt at least a little bit of exasperation over the Yankees coughing up a big lead when their ace, CC Sabathia, was on the mound.

I don’t know if the edge in Posada’s voice will come over well on the audio and this was far from “Angry Jorge.” That said, Posada’s short, clipped answers when he’s asked about the pitchers (particularly the relievers) certainly felt indicative of frustration when listening to them live. Check out the clip below.

For what it’s worth, Posada said the passed ball from Damaso Marte was NOT a cross-up (even if it looked that way) but was just symbolic of how wild Marte was. At the very least, Posada could be happy with his offensive start to the season – 3-for-4 with a homer, although he admitted that when he made contact on the home run ball he “thought it was going foul.”
