Hopefully you don't have to play Posey for a long period of time at 1st. His numbers will be OK for 1B but really good for C. Santana has been starting some games at 1B also, so he may likely gain elegibility there (check your league's rules). I like both of them and think their numbers will be similar at the end of the year. That person probably offered you Santana because he's slumping a bit now, but he'll come out of it. I like Posey slightly more given Santana's injury from last year. You may want to consider asking for an additional player that would help your team along with Santana; I would if you're considering the trade.

I think both will end up with similar numbers which means Santana will outproduce Posey from here on out.

Santana is going to come out of his slump and absolutely mash.

Check out this article about his approach at the plate.

I think Posey just because he has a bigger role in San Fran.

I have always liked Santana more.
Posey might win in average, but Santana has more power.

Posey came on faster than I expected and before Santana, but I think Santana is better option in long run.
