Jorge Posada played catch yesterday, throwing 140 times at varying distances. According to Jorge, he’s feeling pretty good and is progressing nicely. Also, speaking of Jorge, he offered a “that’s pretty accurate” of his own, yesterday, when asked if he was one of the 104 players on the now infamous 2003 survey list.
From Anthony McCarron (Daily News):
When Posada was asked if he worried that his name would get tainted by steroids, he replied, “I hope not. I think I’ve done things right. I don’t think I’ve put anything in my body that could be positive on one of those tests.”
Later, Posada had to clarify to a reporter that he had never used steroids.
“I have never done it,” Posada said in a telephone interview. “Let me make myself clear: I will never be positive. I don’t take anything. I’ve never tested positive in anything and I never will.”
Jorge hit 30 homers in 2003. I guess everyone is a suspect, now.
