I haven't got a chance to see him myself, is he a longball hitter? Or more of a contact and drive in runs kind of guy?

He's definitely more of a contact and line drive hitter. Posey does have good power, IMO he probably becomes a 25-HR guy in MLB at his peak, he doesn't have the raw power of say someone like Carlos Santana or Jesus Montero. His power is above average but he does have a very good bat-speed which helps him. Posey will draw walks and he will hit for high batting average.

Montero and Santana are better offensively than Posey but what separates Posey from others is that he's a total package. Posey's defence is very good.
