Posey will see an increase in his K% and a drop in his HR/FB%. Read: worse AVG and less HR. It's called luck. You are blinded by the hype, ring and award.
I don't see much evidence for an increase in K%. He never struck out much in the minors. Also you left out the fact that he could very well see an increase in BB% as his rate during the season didn't reflect his minor league rates.
I'm not sure what you are trying to prove here. It is much easier to say Santana is underrated than to say that one of the most valuable players in baseball today is overrated.

it is fact. when a players ascends to a higher level, his K% rises. Posey's went down. The scouting reports are going around and he will feel what people refer to as the "sophomore slump". it's in the percentages. do the math instead of being a momo
Sorry to say, but i don't see that happening as the # 4 hitter on the Giants. I don't think it is luck. I have been involved with baseball for 25 years and don't see many holes in this kid's game (except for base running). I remember a guy who came up with the Giants in 1986 who was hyped as a sure thing (aka Will Clark) and Buster is much like him, but has better bat speed, has better bat control within the strike zone and hits line drives to all fields. I sorry to say I am not blinded by anything that this kid did last year. He will be even better given a full season. If you don't take him, someone else will and reap the benefits.

will clark? cheese n rice. you're a homer. take your mantasies to a giants message board. all you have to do is look at his minor league numbers. earth to homer, major league SP are better than minor league SP. why would Posey have better percentages in the majors as a rookie?!? it's called luck. it's called regression. it's called me being an expert
Posey will have a good year, but his current ADP is way too high. You can get by with just about any catcher, really.Better players go the same round because people panic about position scarcity.
