Jorge Posada, You're No Thurman Munson!

Did you know he pronounces it "whore-hey", by the way? Kinda funny, don't you think?

Anyway, Jorge is another one of those kids we found floating on a raft in the Gulf of Mexico. We found him first though and laid claim to him, totally pissing off the rest of the league. As I always say with these floaters, "finders keepers, losers Red Sox!"

So our boy Jorge is having a nice season at the plate. He's currently hitting .334, which is remarkable given that he's never even approached .300 in any of his previous seasons with us! Before you go wondering whether he's on the juice or not, let me set the record straight: No, we couldn't possibly have enough juice in our clubhouse for Giambi and anyone else!

So now people are starting to talk about Posada like he's a Hall of Fame candidate or the next coming of Thurman Munson. Come on, people! Munson had a career batting average of .292 and he's not in Cooperstown, so don't expect Posada to magically show up there. Besides, just how much bronze would they need to put those huge ears on a plaque?! I often wonder whether he can get satellite TV/radio through those things. They're huge!
