When he was asked if this was a matter of “insubordination” he said would not give a comment. If you ask me that is telling enough.

Cashman said that Jorge Posada would be able to explain his reasons after the game. Posada was born in August 1971 and is a Major League baseball catcher playing for the NY Yankees. He has been on five all star teams over the 16 year career. According to Wikipedia He is the only Major League catcher to ever have hit .330 or better with 40 doubles, 20 home runs, and 90 RBIs in a single season.
