Hall of Very Good:
Well, that didn't last long.
Just days after Jorge Posada announced his retiring, word came that his $11.5 million condominium was on the market.
But, I guess when the Yankees don't need you in New York...you cease needing to own property on Manhattan's Upper East Side.
Curious about what the condo contains? Be curious no more...thanks to The Real Estalker.
Property records suggest Mister and Missus Posada purchased and subsequently combined two adjacent mid-floor condo residences in to one mansion-sized sprawler at The Seville, a 31-story, full-service white glove condo tower that lords over a busy but fairly ordinary corner of East 77th Street and 2nd Avenue. The glassy tower offers residents round-the-clock door people, direct access to a private garage, and a state of the art fitness center complete with the requisite body torture devices, an outdoor terrace, swimming pool, spa, and sauna.
We're not entirely sure when they snatched up the first piece of their hoity-toity New York City real estate puzzle but we do find clear evidence Mister and Missus Posada paid $3,600,000—or $3,500,000 depending on where one peeps—for the nearly 2,300 square foot condo next door in August 2007.
Listing information and marketing materials for the Posada's now- and rather smartly-combined 10-plus room urban oasis show it spans approximately 5,600 square feet of interior space—and 0 square feet of exterior space, offers four highly desirable exposures—those would be north, south, east and west, of course—and is currently configured with 4 bedrooms and 5 full and 2 half bathrooms.
Oh...on a less stalkerish note, the five-time World Champ was inducted into the Latin American International Sports Hall of Fame over this past weekend.
And that concludes conversation including both "Jorge Posada" and "Hall of Fame".
Now...pictures of that massive crib dude is trying to unload! Click below to see all of them.

Yankees signed RHP Manny Delcarmen to a minor league contract. He also gets a spring training invite. Delcarmen, who turns 30 next month, posted a 5.59 ERA and 33/15 K/BB ratio over 38 2/3 innings last season with the Triple-A affiliates for the Mariners and Rangers. The former Red Sox reliever hasn’t pitched in the [...]
BOSTON -- When Curtis Granderson first stepped into the batter's box against pitcher Michael Pineda last year, he didn't notice any fear. "He came out, he came right at you," Granderson said Monday before the Hot Stove Cool Music roundtable. "I don't remember the exact results of what we did against him [New York won 4-3], but I knew he was in there, knew...
Brian Cashman and Theo Epstein say after years of being on opposite sides of baseball's most bitter rivalry, they are looking forward to being able to make deals with one another.
The Yankees general manager and the former general manager of the Red Sox appeared together at a forum Tuesday at Sacred Heart University.
The 38-year-old Epstein, now president of baseball operations...
According to Joel Sherman of the New York Post, the New York Yankees have signed right handed reliever Manny Delcarmen to a Minor League deal.
The 29 years old last pitched in the Majors in 2010 with the Rockies and Red Sox. That year he went 3-4 with a 4.99 ERA in 52.1 innings. He also posted a 1.4 HR/9, 5.5 BB/9 and 6.5 SO/9 that season.

The deal that sent Michael Pineda to the Yankees has made him the talk of the rotation, but the real breakout candidate this year could be free agent Hiroki Kuroda.
Kuroda is 36, so calling him a breakout candidate probably sounds odd; pitchers that are already past the age of 35 don’t normally improve significantly. He is, however, entering his fifth season in the States, and...
No one should expect Mark Teixeira to become a $180 million bunter this season, but the Yankee first baseman admits he’s finally ready to give in to his frustrations over declining numbers the past few years.
Having been frustrated by his .223 batting average against righties, due in part to seeing sure hits die in the infielders' gloves on the outfield grass, Mark Teixeira said on Tuesday that he is ready to put the bunt in defenders' minds.
Mark Teixeira has resisted the idea for years, but after hitting a career-low .248 last season, the first baseman is considering adding bunting to his game.
“One thing I noticed is that my average with men on base was good, but when no one’s on base, it wasn’t...
