This is in dramatic contrast to last year, when Posada's early-season struggles prompted a great deal of nervous chatter about how it is the fate of all catchers to suddenly and irrevocably decline in their early 30s.

Though Posada could not rival them on batting average in their prime, his combination of patience and power made him a potent hitter even when his batting average was only.270 or.280.
