Posada expects to be a Spring Training guest instructor

Jorge Posada was donning the pinstripes once again this weekend for the Yankees’ Women’s Fantasy camp and said he expects to be in Tampa as a guest instructor during Spring Training. ““They haven’t asked me yet, but they said they are going to,” Posada told reporters. “I’ll be around.” As for the possibility of following in former teammate Andy Pettitte‘s footsteps and making a comeback, Posada squashed that notion. “No comeback for me,” said Posada. “I’m good with what I’m doing and I was happy with the decision I made last year around this time. I’m enjoying the family.”

Posada did say he enjoyed the idea of being a coach and bossing around his former teammates, Pettitte, Derek Jeter and Mariano Rivera. “I’ll be bossing them around … telling them to run, and all that stuff,” he said with a smile on his face.
