By the way, did anyone catch Jorge Posada's post game comments?
During his interview with the media, the YES Network's Kim Jones asked him about the game ending with a laugh with Swisher on the mound, and Posada interrupted her saying, "Nobody was laughing. Today was embarrassing; just one of those days where everything went for them and nothing went for us. We didn’t pitch or do the things we were supposed to do. Nobody was laughing.”
Here was Swisher's had to say about it: “I wanted to try to compete. Even though I was pumping 78, I wanted to go out there and get three outs. I had fun with it. When am I ever going to have the chance to do that again? Probably never. I’m walking out of my professional career with a 0.00 ERA. ... We know we didn’t play very well today, but we had to find something to laugh about in that moment and I just happened to be the guy everyone was laughing at. If that’s what it takes to get us back together and get rockin’, then I’m all for it.”
Even Derek Jeter admitted that sometimes you have to laugh during nights like last night. Here's what his take from Mark Feinsand:
Derek Jeter had a different take, saying “you have no choice” but to laugh when things get that out of hand.
“Whether Swish pitched or not, it’s still the same result,” Jeter said. “You get a chuckle out of it because it’s him and he’s not going to stop talking about it.”
Is it just me or should Jorge lighten up a bit? I like his intensity, but come on, it's still a game and Swisher on the mound was funny as hell.
