Is this the end for Posada?
However, during this post-season Posada looked like his old self, hitting .429 with an on-base percentage of .579. This, however, doesn't change his stats for the year: .235 average with 14 homeruns. This includes a tough beginning of the season/summer where he fell to 9th in the batting order and pulled himself from the lineup.
The last 71 games of the season Posada tried to salvage his year hitting .282 with 8 homeruns. The Yankees however, seem to be ready for a change. Now that both Austin Romine and Jesus Montero have proven they can play in the big leagues, there is stiff competition for the catching position. Additionally, the Yankees are going to need a more reliable, and more powerful player in the DH spot (especially if A-Rod and Teixeira continue their inability to hit in the playoffs).
In my opinion, Posada was awesome for the Yankees, but it's hard to disagree with the fact that it may be time to move on.
