Jorge Posada Emotional As New York Yankees Lose To Detroit Tigers

Jorge Posada was emotional last night following The New York Yankees' loss of the AL division series to the Detroit Tigers. The 16-year Yankee veteran fielded questions about what was likely his final game as a Yankee, before abruptly departing in tears, reports New York Daily News. The “Core Four” member – who had two more hits Thursday night - wound up 6-for-14 (.429) in the series against the Tigers of which he wasn't even sure he would play. "Losing is tough, period, and losing at home is even tougher,” the deflated five-time world champion admitted. YET, he insisted there wasn’t any moment during the game when he allowed himself to think this might be his final game as a Yankee, NY Daily News reports. "It's all about the game, trying to win the ballgame. That's all you think about. I have no words. We lost,” Posada said. The defeat added to a disappointing season for Posada. When he reported to spring training, he was told to abandon his catcher duties and focus on being a full-time DH. Then, on May 14, Posada requested to leave the Yankee lineup when Joe Girardi placed him ninth in the lineup for a high-profile game against the Red Sox, reports NY Daily News.
