A clue as to what Posada may want

Over on their Extra Bases blog, the Boston Globe is reporting that Mike Lowell seems to be looking for four years/$56 million.

Given that Lowell and Jorge Posada have the same agents (Sam and Seth Levinson), that could be a sign of what they’re seeking from the Yankees.

If anything, Posada could demand more. He plays a harder position to fill for the Yankees. The Red Sox could play Kevin Youkilis at third base or even entertain the notion of signing Alex Rodriguez. Posada had a historically significant season for a catcher. Lowell was good in 2007 but not historically good.

Is a 36-year-old catcher worth four years and $56 million? That’s a lot of scratch unless you think he can transition smoothly to first base and remain productive with the bat.
