UPDATE: Scratch all of this. Ken Rosenthal spoke to Jorge Posada’s agent who says “there is no truth to that report. None.” So, go Heyman.
Hard to see why they, or most anyone else actually, would be. Most teams like their backup catchers to have some defensive skills. Nothin’ personal, but Posada simply doesn’t anymore. And his 2011 line of .235/.315/.398 isn’t strong enough to justify a DH gig anyplace.
As much fun as it has been to watch Jorge Posada over the years, I can’t help but think that he’s going to, at best, get a spring training invite from someone with no accompanying major league deal. And that at some point in early-to-mid March he’ll have a press conference in Tampa in which he announces his retirement.
