"I could catch next year,'' Posada said in the clubhouse before tonight's game with the Kansas City Royals. "I could have (caught) this year. I could have been a backup this year, could have backed somebody up.''Physically, yes he can probably still catch, but he has been below average defensively for a long time now and I can't imagine a year off will help.
"It’s not easy to do something you’re not used to,'' he said. "But if I'm upset with anyone, I'm upset with myself, just overall. I don’t know what happened this year, I really don’t know. There's some things I could have done differently but I can't pinpoint what they are."
Also, there's no need to wonder what happened this year, he's a 39-year-old, sometimes you just get old.
