Who Is This Jose Posada You Speak Of, Bob Costas?

Thursday, April 16, 2009

I've been watching the Yankees' first game at their new stadium on the MLB Network for most of the afternoon, to see how good of a transition Bob Costas is making back into the booth. For the better part of the game, he (along with Reynolds and Kaat) has been doing a great job, but he had a pretty big gaff during the fifth inning.

If you're going to get the opportunity to call the first homerun at Yankee Stadium, and people will hear the call forever, you might want to get the player's name right as he rounds the bases....

Whoops! Again, he's been great for most of the afternoon, but that was a pretty big slip up right there. I'm thinking the Yankees will file away the YES Network's call, instead of Costas'.


Jose Posada is the hot prospect the Yanks signed out of Cuba. Then they bought Cuba.

I think its a petty big gaff, however, he recovered petty well. By the way, The Ynakees were never going to use Costas' call to begain with. They would use the YES Network call all the way.

Did Pat Ward replace Costas on the MLB Network?

Think Jose Posada can help me get in touch with Rick Romo?
