Yankees' catcher Jorge Posada reportedly asked to be released before Saturday's game when he learned manager Joe Girardi put him in the 9th spot in the batting order.
You have to be smart to be a MLB catcher. I understand that players want to feel valued and respected, but Jorge is hitting .165, which is last out of 193 MLB qualifying batters. There is always an ego involved, but you have to look in the mirror.
Being that Jorge is the DH, I'm guessing there are a few other role players on the Yankees who wouldn't mind being the everyday DH. Even if it meant batting 9th.
