Posada has reached out to the Mets organization looking for a job, but the Mets turned him down as they are looking for a more defensive catcher, according to Jon Heyman of Sports Illustrated.
This is just the latest rumor as Posada has already insinuated that he would like to play for the Miami Marlins which is close to his offseason home. It seems like the only way that he will go down as a lifetime Yankee is if nobody is interested in his services.
It’s certainly a possibility that Posada will be without a chair when the music stops playing. He’s 40-years-old and is coming off his worst offensive season in his career. On top of that he’s pretty much a full-time DH now as he wasn’t much of a defensive catcher even in his prime. Considering two other, more qualified DH’s are available on the market, David Ortiz and Vladimir Guerrero, Posada is not going to have many options.
Hopefully he just retires.
