Posada talk

Jorge Posada is the topic of late at Baseball Reference’s Stat of the Day Blog. 

Andy crunched the numbers and determined that as of now, Posada is having the best year for a 35-year catcher using the OPS+ stat. 

Also, Steve L has found that if Posada continues his season, he will have five seasons with 130 games and and 120 OPS+ since turning 30 years of age.   Nobody else has done it more than twice.  You can see the list here.

I never gave Posada more than two looks before (and honestly didn’t think he 35 years old already).  Both these stats point to a catcher with some durability to be sure.
