We’ve seen the connection made many times already, but now consider the interest official. The Mets are targeting Jorge Posada. The Yankees are expected to offer a three-year, $40MM type deal to him soon. That’s all well and good but I can see him getting four years and $56MM given the season he had. Perhaps the Yanks will extend themselves to that range though.
The Mets are playing the field, as they’ve given Paul Lo Duca’s agent an impression that they’ll be making an offer. I like the idea of the Mets overpaying for Posada, as catcher is a clear position they can upgrade via free agency.
