Hit the lottery, or DH for the Yankees

Published:

This is fron an article on Yahoo sports about Jose Posada taking himself out of a game when he was moved to ninth in the batting order Saturadys night, May 14.

A person familiar with the discussion between Posada and the team told The Associated Press that he “refused” to play. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the situation was still not settled.

The person said the Yankees have been in contact with the commissioner’s office about possible recourse. The Yankees could fine Posada one day’s paythat would be $71,978 on his $13.1 million salary. If a player declines to play two days in a row, he could be put on the restricted list.

I would bat ninth for $100,000 a year. And I hate the Yankees.
Love the way Feliz froze A-Rod with that slider for the last out for the pennant last year.
