This is hysterical...

Ok, the link to ABC News is below, and is dated

By ESPN.COM NEWS SERVICES via ESPN Feb 10, 2018, 10:35 PM ET

Only this story first came out May 4th, 2008!

The Yahoo link/comments is pretty funny, and I think has an explanation:

This is actually all on ESPN's New York division, if you click on the continue reading an ABC outlet in New York picked up the story via ESPN. This is what happens when ESPN cuts staff down to the bone and hires a bunch of dorks fresh out of writing school, and they try to get the scoop on a "Sports News Story" the kid who came up with this story is probably so proud of himself, all while not even having the slightest idea that he just rewrote a sports story from 2008 and DURING THE SEASON! This goof doesn't even realize that Spring Training has yet to start. This is what happens when writers don't have a clue about what they are writing about!

They are completely distracted. Probably misread 2008 as 2018.

ESPN is hiring people who have no idea about sports. Even if it said 2018 people in sports don't instantly know that Posada has been retired for almost a decade. Either that or they didn't check what they were printing
Ouch.

I think they'd have to make a 40-man roster move to promote Elston. Maybe waive Dan Pasqua?

I don' think he's going to get claimed on waivers. Probably could stash him at Columbus.
