Those harboring wistful dreams of Jorge Posada swooping in to mentor the Rays’ young pitching staff will be disappointed tonight. The New York Daily News reports Posada has agreed to a four-year, $52-million deal to stay with the Yankees.

The Mets were the only other serious consideration for Posada, but the Yankees will feel good about locking up their catcher before he could officially talk dollars with other teams. The Yanks’ other high-profile free agent, Mariano Rivera, reportedly is likely to re-sign sometime soon, allowing New York to save a little face after the way everything went down with Joe Torre.
