  1. If the Yankees wanted an old, mediocre designated hitter why not just keep Jorge Posada?

    Raul Ibanez‘s one-year contract with the Yankees is worth just $1 million in guaranteed money, but the bigger issue is that he’s 40 years old and coming off a terrible season in which he hit .245 with a .289 on-base percentage and .419 slugging percentage in 144 games. Within that awful overall performance was some…

    Gawker/Deadspin’s A.J. Daulerio is not always the muckraker Gotham wants, but sometimes he’s the muckraker Gotham needs. Wait, not sure we really need this, but it’s out there anyway and 800 readers will send me this throughout the day asking me to link it, so I link it: Daulerio tracked down Brian Cashman’s mistress. She’s fed up…

    Posada Presser

    The Jorge Posada retirement press conference just went down at Yankee Stadium.  It was a packed house. Even more so than Andy Pettitte’s last year. In attendance were Derek Jeter, Mariano Rivera, CC Sabathia and about a zillion others. It was also pretty emotional, as Diana Munson, the widow of Thurman Munson, was on hand.…

  6. Two examples of Jorge Posada being underrated

    Jan 23, 2012, 12:44 PM EDT

    Amid news that Jorge Posada is planning to retire I’ve written a couple times recently that he’s underrated, in part because catchers in general tend to be undervalued and in part because Posada specifically has been in the shadow of various other Yankees stars. Some readers scoffed at the notion of Posada being underrated, but…

  9. Carlos Pena is on the Yankees’ radar

    Fact: the Yankees have a radar. It’s a bistatic radar, adapted from Soviet-era surface-to-air missile systems.  Most teams are still using monostatic radar making them far less lethal forces than are the Yankees. It’s a little known fact but one we baseball insiders are all hip to. Stick with me and I’ll drop all kinds…

    Sweeny Murti of WFAN in New York just reported that Jorge Posada will announce his retirement within the next two weeks. This shouldn’t come as a big surprise. We already knew Posada wasn’t returning to the Yankees in 2012, but he hadn’t ruled out the possibility of continuing his career elsewhere. In fact, there were…

With that in mind, Javier Maymi of ESPNDeportes.com hears (link in Spanish) that the division-rival Rays are interested in the 40-year-old. Maymi confirmed the information with Posada’s father, who said he has also had…

    Jorge Posada

    Jon Heyman tweeted a few minutes ago that Jorge Posada — who lives in Miami — would like to play for the Marlins. Of course yesterday Heyman said that Posada wanted to play for the Mets and actually called them. That report was shot down an hour later by Posada’s agent.  So stay tuned to…

None.”  So, go Heyman. 9:37 AM: Jorge Posada still wants to play baseball, and today Jon Heyman tweets that he’s reached out to the Mets to see if they’d be interested. Hard to see why…

    Minnesota attempted zero stolen bases while being swept out of ALDS in three games, but you can be certain that Texas will test New York’s ability to control the running game early and often in the ALCS. Texas swiped 123 bases during the regular season to rank seventh among all MLB teams and second to…
