Mauer did at least have over 2100 hits.


I think that puts him ahead of Posey. I also think defensively Mauer was a better catcher.

Both were very good players; IMO Mauer is 50/50 and Posey is probably on the outside looking in any way you slice it. As in my other post, I think the best comp for Posey is Javy Lopez, who didn't get much consideration.
