Posada Paints His Nails
Most catchers just wear tape on their fingers, but when you have to compete with the likes of A-Rod and Jeter, you must start feeling a lot less pretty. I could just imagine him after the game, "Yeah guys, I'll catch up with you later, just have to remove this nail polish before I go home so my wife doesn't run away with half of my salary". I bet it went down like this:
Posada and Jeter get lunch on Wednesday. Jeter orders the quiche and sparkling water, reeking of his new cologne. "Hey Jorge, I have to introduce you to my manicurist, she does an amazing job." Since every Yankee wants to be Jeter, he complies and ends up getting his nails painted. Their geriatric pitcher actually can see his signs better now, and Posada will be doomed to a life of putting on nail polish every 5 days. Look for hot pink to make an appearance on Monday.
