Posey has played in 69 more games in his career and accumulated about 300 more at bats. Techinically, you're right EY that Posey has put up better numbers (not by a long shot with Santana's season being cut short last year)but to make the comparison is short-sited and mind-numbingly pointless. Posey and Santana are basically equals in terms of fielding at the C position, but I'd say Santana needs a little more time in terms of calling a ballgame (again sample size). Lets talk about this when the year is over and they have comparable sample sizes in terms of plate appearences and games. Equally one of the most fruitless back and forth banters I've read here in terms of comparing young players.

However, a missed year is a missed year and Carlos has to get back on track. I think what rubbed Jimbo and Delcucci the wrong was was that it was somewhat of a slam on Carlos when the set of circumstances has obvoiusly allowed Buster to show what he is made of (even with a small sample size in terms of plate appearences and games). Not really sure if the comment was necessessry as Santana had a decent year going last year and it ended abruptly. If we blow his stats out from last year he would have been a 30/20 guy with 80+ RBI and an OPS+ of 144. Kinda disengenuous to make that comment with the knowledge one guy had a devistating knee injury. Its like saying Josh Tomlin is better than Steven Strasburgh. Given his results Josh IS better thus far, but its not this black and white comparison because we have very small sample size to look at. Saying Buster is better is as pointless as someone saying Carlos should be considered one of the best out there on talent alone. Not saying you're wrong Lee in a techinical sense, but that comment IMO is out of place considering how short along BOTH players are in their careers.
