Yankees Notes: Posada Retires, DH Trade Possibility, Burnett Trade Market

Jorge Posada's retirement presser was this morning, and by all accounts it was packed and went off as well as any presser in New York could go. Before we move on to the notes and rumors, I'd like to do some custodial work with this slightly puzzling tweet from Joe Sheehan:

Twitter / @joe_sheehan - "Silliness: Jorge Posada got MVP votes in exactly two seasons."

Posada was great. Really great, and for a long time too. But was he even ever the best player on his own team? C'mon man. Let's move on.

Today's Yankee notes include a suggestion from Brian Cashman that perhaps the club could trade for a DH, a surprisingly ugly tweet about AJ Burnett from Jon Heyman, and a clarification on Phil Hughes' role on the team:

  • Cashman: We could trade for a DH - Bryan Hoch |
    "Maybe I use our excess pitching to find a bat," Cashman said. "That’s a possibility. … We stretched the payroll to get [Kuroda] done, so I’m not sure what we have financially. I think we’ll look at the trade market first and foremost and see where that takes us."
