Re: Buster Posey to drop?
Posey does have the benefit of hitting in the (old school) Coors field of college baseball. Combine that with a metal bat and I don't trust his power numbers... certainly not for $12M.
I don't think the Reds even consider him if he's still demanding 8 figures.
Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.
