Need to display byline, date, categories and tags in page auto list

I have four blogs sitting in a root blog folder. The four blogs basically represent my categories. In my root blog folder, I have a blog list widget on my index page. The problem is I need to be able to filter to only pull in posts but it’s pulling the index pages of all my subdirectories as well as the index page of the blog directory. I can use a page auto list to filter by posts but I lose the option to display tags, categories, date and byline. Is there any way to do this with page auto list?
