Jorge Posada not interested in a comeback
Pettitte returned to the Yankees on a Major League contract. Posada, however, won't be doing the same. He came to camp at Hal Steinbrenner's invitation, but intends to stay for only a couple of days before heading home and putting the catching gear back in storage.
"I have no interest in playing ball," Posada told reporters. "I don't want to be gone for that long. You retire to be home and you don't want to be gone for a month and a half.
"I don't think I could [come back]. Really, I don't think I can. The grind of a long season, I don't think I could do that anymore. I'm happy where I'm at. I'm not second-guessing myself. I know I can't play the game now. In my mind, I think I made the right decision."
Outside of baseball, Posada is coaching his son, Jorge Jr., at baseball and daughter, at tennis.
"I enjoy being with them," Posada said. "I'm doing the taxi thing all over the place to take the kids, and I enjoy it. I enjoy that."
