Former Yankees Catcher Jorge Posada Says Drug Users Do Not Belong in Hall of Fame [VIDEO]
On August 22nd, former New York Yankees catcher Jorge Posada will have his number 20 jersey retired by the team he spent his entire 17-year career with. Posada, who just released his autobiography entitled "The Journey Home: My Life in Pinstripes", told CBS This Morning that he resents players who used performance enhancing drugs during their career. Posada spoke candidly to CBS' Mark Strassmann, and the five-time All Star said that he does not believe it is fair for players like Roger Clemens and Alex Rodriguez who took PEDs to be allowed into the Baseball Hall of Fame. Posada added that A-Rod would be surprised to hear about his harsh comments toward his former Yankees teammate. It would be interesting to hear Posada's opinion of Andy Pettitte, a close friend and Yankees teammate who admitted to using human growth hormone in 2002. Unlike A-Rod or Clemens, Pettitte was loved by players and fans and the Yankees will also retire his number 46 jersey in August.
