Jorge Posada has elected to have shoulder surgery, thus ending his 2008 season.
From Mark Feinsand:
“I think this is also what he wants to do. He said, ‘I agree 100 percent. Let’s get it going,’” Cashman said. “He was willing to do what we wanted when there was a need. He was delaying the surgery for that need, but now that we have a hitter, I think this was predictable.”I'm glad I won't have to see his face until March.
Posada will need a minimum of six months to rehab from the surgery, so he may not even be ready for the start of spring training.
