Jorge Posada won’t be bothered by his impending free agency as he enters his age 36 season. Last year’s resurgence was surprising given his age and position.
It’s hard to picture the longtime Yankee backstop with any other team. If PECOTA were to re-sign Posada for 2007-09, it would offer $25 million or so. Apparently Posada’s skills will age pretty well. I think the Yankees will get something done for three years and $30 million.
If the Yankees decide to go another route, free agent catchers may include Michael Barrett, Paul LoDuca, and Ivan Rodriguez.
