Hmm, i'm not quite sure on that... while he's obviously swinging for the fences, the early-batting average does look like a hot load of suck. alex avila has looked nice, heck, the other day he had a 2-run double off of michael pineda, which is no small feat at this juncture in time and space. Short of a good week for Nick Hundley, Avila is off to the best start of that lot and given that the job is his in detroit would seem like it'd be the way to go.
Still though, at posada's age i think it's easier for him to figure out how to hit singles than to worry about whether or not his power is gone. Granted, last year Posada had some crazy splits between home and away that featured him flossing at home and sucking on the road, still, i'd be inclined to believe that posada could figure out how to hit .280 for a period of time with some/most of the power that he's displayed early, as opposed to if he was hitting .280 with 0 home runs and 4 rbis or something.
if i had the roster space, i'd take a flier on avila, but as i have posada in a couple'a leagues i'm a bit hesitant to cut bait on him, even tho he's a large part of those two teams hitting .250 and .230 respectively, no doubt... but then again, so is gordon beckham
