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.
