Posey as Berra

Pitches on the edge of the strike zone resulted in the most long hits for Buster Posey this post season:

Buster Posey slugging, 2010 regular season.The main differences are that Posey hit more pitches near the middle of the plate, and produced very litte power on the lower outside corner.  He's playing the post-season more like Yogi Berra.  While we don't have heat charts for Yogi, he was a notorious bad ball hitter.  He also played great defense behind the plate.

Buster showed good selectivity at the plate in the minors.  I suspect Yogi is the floor of Posey's career, which bodes well for the rookie.
