Posada’s shoulderSummer 2007: Posada kicks butt
Fall 2007: Posada signs gigantic contract
2008-onward: Posada breaks down:
Yankees catcher Jorge Posada said the new soreness in his surgically repaired right shoulder was nothing to worry about.
Rare is the major injury that doesn't start out as "a little soreness" or "a little tightness" in media reports. Likewise rare is the contract that turns out as poorly as Posada's is looking like it is likely to.

Though Posada is crushing the ball at the plate thus far this spring. soreness, after surgery, is common, possibly just scar tissue. Could be something more serious, but I’d be more afraid if I were the Mets with Johan than I am with Posada.
and remember, it’s only a bad contract if you can’t afford it.

It’s funny that you mentioned the Mets. My first thought when reading this, as a Phillies fan, was a wish to go back in time and have had the Mets outbid the Yanks for Posada’s services, last winter.

Jorge - enjoy your role as DH.
Actually if you embrace the role of DH you could do some real damage in the lineup - so as a Sox fan please try to catch lots of games.
