Via Joel Sherman, the Yankees have no intention of keeping Jorge Posada beyond this season, and the former backstop knew this from the outset of Spring Training. The problem is that Posada doesn’t want to retire nor does he want to play for another team. Aside from his poor performance this year, I’m certain this is another thing on Jorge’s mind, and I can’t imagine it feels good. It’s always ugly at the end of a legacy player’s career, and the past 24 hours are really just the beginning (of the end) for Posada.
