Derek Jeter, Yankees Patch Things Up After Jorge Posada Drama

It wasn't enough that the Yankees found themselves embroiled in drama after Jorge Posada refused to play against the Red Sox on Saturday night. No - after smoothing that situation over, the Yankees then found themselves embroiled in drama after captain Derek Jeter spoke in Posada's defense. The Yankees were reportedly upset that their shortstop involved himself in the situation and forgave Posada for his behavior.

But hey, great news now everybody! Via Mark Feinsand:

According to a team source, the Yankees have spoken with Derek Jeter and all is fine between them.

And more:

Jeter, Levine, Cashman and Hal held a conference call early this afternoon. Jeter: "We're all on the same page."

Well that's a relief. At last, perhaps everybody can move on, and maybe everybody can move on having learned a thing or two from this whole nightmare. Maybe next time a player does something objectionable in the clubhouse, it should stay within the clubhouse so the entire organization doesn't look silly in the aftermath.

For the record, Jorge Posada is not in Monday's starting lineup. But that's because the Yankees are facing David Price, and not because of any disciplinary actions.
