Francisco Cervelli. Austin Romine. Jesus Montero. Gary Sanchez. J.R. Murphy. All are young Yankees catchers who are keeping a close watch this spring on 38-year-old starter Jorge Posada. But despite all the young talent that surrounds him, Posada says he won’t go away any time soon.
"I am going to make it tough, that’s the way I was brought up," the veteran switch hitter told the New York Post. "We got a lot of talent, but I am going to make it tough for them. I don’t want to go away.
"I am having fun and enjoy playing. To tell you the truth, they are going to really have to rip (the uniform) off me."
