You can pound Zack Greinke and the Brewers on a sultry summer night at the Stadium late in June, and watch the kid shortstop single and walk and steal second base, and hear the drumbeat grow that the Yankees are better without Derek Jeter. It is knee-jerk madness, and no one knows this better than Jorge Posada.
“I don’t see that. Nobody in this organization sees that,” Posada told The Post before Yankees 12, Brewers 2. “Derek Jeter belongs in this organization, and they need him to be here. He is the guy that we look up to and the leader of this team. . . . [He’s] the guy that keeps doing and he’s going to keep doing what he needs to do to bring winning baseball to this organization.”
I think it’s safe to cross GM off Posada’s post-playing career options.
