And Braun's offensive WAR is quite a bit higher (almost a full win) than Posey's, and his baserunning is also better than Posey by abouthalf of a win. So roughly 1.5 WAR advantage for Braun excluding fielding, where obviously the edge would go to Posey, but hard to say by how much. Suffice it to say it's close enough that simply looking at WAR won't give a definitive answer. It's not like either of them are ahead by 3+ WAR or anything.
Where did you find that Braun's offensive WAR is a full win higher than Posey's? Baseball-reference shows Posey ahead by over 1 WAR, I assume it's fangraphs that says differently?
Either way Posey is either tied or ahead in overall WAR so it's silly to call it a snub or say that Braun is more deserving imo.
