My question is with that much corrosion build-up in one month, which is at fault here, battery or electrical system? Do I need to replace the OEM battery? I have since applied some corrosion resistent grease to post posts to keep the corrosion from building up.

The solution(s) ... clean really good and wash with white vinegar and then baking soda solution. Keep at it until there is no more foaming. Really slather the posts and surrounding area with dielectric grease (I didn't have any and used axle grease, which worked fine), put on those felt thingies and button it up.
I was cleaning my posts once a month, and it's been six months and no build up since.
Now, having said all this, I've never had the problem in any car EXCEPT the Legacy (including our '87 GL) ... go figger.
