Posada's Emotional Post Game Comments

From Rick Carpiniello:
Did Posada consider whether he’d just played his final game in a Yankees uniform:

“I don’t know. I don’t know,” he said. “That’s a tough one. We’ll see. I don’t want to look at it like that. We lost. We’ll see what happens in the offseason.”

Would he want to come back in a similar, or lesser role?

“I don’t know,” he said. “I don’t know what’s going to happen. I really can’t answer that right now. We just lost a tough series. We come back home to lose 3-2, it’s a tough one.”

Did he think about it during the game?

“No. No. It was all about the game. You put yourself in the situation of trying to win the ballgame. That’s all you think about.”

Asked about memories (presumably of all his years as a Yankee, the question was inaudible):

“I don’t go back as far as (yesterday). I don’t know. I can’t answer it. Really. I gave it all on the field.”

About the fans:

“They’ve been awesome. The fans have been unbelievable to this team and to me, and I give them a lot of credit. They kept me here.”

If this loss hurts more than others …

“Sorry,” he said, rubbing his eyes. Then he broke down in tears and left the clubhouse.
If this was the end for Jorge at least he went out with a nice series. He finished the ALDS with a .429 batting average, going 6-for-14, with 4 walks.

Thanks for the great career, Jorge.
