Now that he's been put out to pasture as a catcher, it makes sense that Jorge would need to find some other activity with which to fill his time. This quote from Mark Feinsand's blog at The Daily News suggests that maybe Jorge is delving into the mysterious arts of the mind.
When asked about a potential Andy Pettitte return some time in 2011, Jorge had this to say:
"It wouldn't surprise me. Andy is a competitor. That's one thing you're going to miss when you stop playing. Hopefully we'll get to see him again."
Now I know there's a big difference between "Hopefully we'll get to see him again" and "He's definitely coming back," so I'm not going to start creaming my jeans over this and neither should anybody else. But I will say that if anybody from the Yankees is in constant contact with Andy, I would put my money on Jorge or somebody else from the Core Four. Jorge has never been the type to just spout off about stuff so you would assume that he's had to have some sort of conversation or conversations with Andy prior to making these statements.
I will say one thing, though. If Andy does decide to come back, my reaction to that announcement is going to dwarf Suzyn Waldman's classic conniption about Rawjuh Clemens. You can take that to the bank. And I will also hail Jorge Posada as a prophet.
