Jorge Posada Trying to Unload Condo

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.

Hate to be disagreeable but to disagree, Posada would RANK #5 in HR's among the 13 HOF Catchers already elected. His rankings: 7th in RBI's, 10th in BA., 8th in Runs, 4th in OBPct, 7th in Slg pct. When you rate as good or better than HALF of the HOF catchers, he DESERVES the opportunity for consideration and election based on performance, not politics.
