While Jorge Posada has yet to officially announce his retirement, he told Adam Berry of MLB.com on Wednesday that he is not planning to play this season.
"I'm not getting prepared for another season, that's for sure," said Posada. "I tried, and it's not in me. ... More and more days started going by, and nothing's going in the right direction." The 40-year-old said he plans to talk things over with his family over the next couple of weeks before making an official announcement about his future, but it sounds like he's dead set on retirement. Posada, a five-time All-Star, has a .273 lifetime batting average over 17 major league seasons to go along with 275 career home runs and 1,065 RBI.
