Jorge Posada stays with the Yankees with a four-year, $52.4-million deal, a package that would have been ridiculous for any team without a DH to consider. Posada wasn’t going anywhere, anyway.
This could enhance Paul Lo Duca’s chances of returning, but it will only be worth it for one year or one with an option. If Lo Duca wants more, he’s not worth it at the production he gives.
The best option is Colorado’s Yorvit Torrealba because he’s young and would cost only money. Trading means giving up players and the Mets aren’t deep in prospects and would be wise to spend their trade chips on pitching.
