Posada says he won’t be back with Yankees in 2012
Does Posada feel his phaseout was similar?
“If you had asked me that question in February of this year, I would have said no. But now I would say yes,” Posada responded. “It went the same way, pretty much.”
“I think after he stays home a few more months and he realizes how hard it is to stay home with the kids, I think he’s going to pay a team to have him play,” Laura said, jokingly. “Honestly, what I said to him was you need to really be sure about your decision, because you don’t want to have any regrets. You don’t want to feel in your mind that you didn’t accomplish something that you set out to accomplish when you started playing baseball. He has been playing baseball all his life, so it’s really hard to wake up and not have anything to do.”
Posada will consider only contending teams for a job that is likely to be a part-time catcher or DH and pinch-hitter. But he’s reluctant to alter a career biography that lists only one team.
“I will always be a Yankee,” he said. “The New York Yankees for me is my second family. It will be tough to put on another uniform for real and learn another set of rules and all that stuff.”
His wife suggested he might want to stick around to reach 300 homers. He has 275.
“I would love to get 300. It’s not going to happen,” he said.
If he does play, she had a suggestion _ the Marlins. The Posadas make their offseason home in the area.
“I love Miami,” she said.
NOTES: The foundation raises money for research into craniosynostosis, a disease that causes bones in the skull to fuse prematurely. Jorge Luis Posada, who turns 12 this month, has had nine operations. The Posada’s repeatedly thanked the Yankees for their contributions to the foundation.
