What would every other MLB team do if they were in the current predicament? So, we’ve lost our starting catcher and now fans are in panic mode(again) over the whole season. Seriously, some fans are like spoilt kids. This situation is exactly why we signed Jose Molina to a longer term deal. This situation is exactly why we have a minor league system. The real worry should be that apparently we have no faith in the catchers we have. Hell, some people on the Yankee forum have been talking about trying to sign Mike Piazza? I think having a concrete block behind home plate may be more effective in getting out runners at 2nd, if only from the ball rebounding.
Lets get a few things straight:
1 – A lot of teams would love to have Jose Molina as their starting Catcher.
2 – We are still unsure about how serious Jorge’s condition is and we’re already talking about who to acquire when replacing him??
3 – Chad Moeller could very well clear waivers.
4 – Why give up a prospect(if a trade was to be made) when we’re not sure how bad the situation is.
Posada will be a huge loss to the Yankees, but please, lets not get too carried away. Molina has done an admirable job this year and he’s actually caught 14 games already. I have every faith he can handle the extra responsibility.
