Number 20... Jorge Posada... Catcher... Number 20...
I will miss this man, who announced his retirement from playing baseball today.
I will also miss his wife Laura.
Seventeen seasons in Pinstripes, 16 trips to the postseason, 7 Pennants, 5 World Championships, 5 All-Star Games, and, despite that face and those ears, he got that woman to marry him and raise 2 children with him.
As another Yankee Legend could say, today, he can consider himself the luckiest man on the face of the Earth.
And we, Yankees Universe, have been lucky to watch him.
