Yadier Molina is the most indispensable Cardinals player

Yadier Molina is coming off a bad year by his standards, and a year where he missed considerable time due to injury. Despite the injury and aging one more year, he is still the most indispensable Cardinals player. Heading into last season, I had very high expectations for Yadier Molina. He was my pick for National League MVP. He was coming off three great seasons in a row. He had averaged nearly six fWAR over the previous two years. Buster Posey had recently won an MVP as a catcher, and the defensive aspects of Molina's game were gaining in appreciation. Molina did not end up winning that...

The (preview of the) new Giants commercial season is here!

There's apparently a staring contest between Madison Bumgarner and Buster Posey, among other delights. Your browser does not support iframes. At first, I was like ... And then I was like ... But then everyone was all ... Giants commercials are coming, everyone. I care far too much about this, and I don't even feel bad. Take a trip down memory lane by remembering last year's commercials. Note: Travis Ishikawa wasn't even in last year's for some reason.

SPRING NOTES: Susac hopes to be Posey’s understudy more than his backup, Hudson to start Wednesday for Giants, etc.

From tomorrow’s paper: SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. – It is one of baseball’s ultimate backhanded compliments: the offensive-minded catcher. Nobody would dare to slap Buster Posey with that tag, even though he’s won a batting title and an NL MVP award. The… Continue Reading →

Giants lose third game out of last four

Angel Pagan can still run, and Jake Peavy is still blind. The Giants lost to the A's, 9-2. You don't care. But here's a meaningful thing that happened in Wednesday's meaningless game: Angel Pagan scored from first on a Buster Posey double, and he looked great doing it. Your browser does not support iframes. Well, I assume Pagan looked great. The camera operator has a tough gig as a one-person crew, but it wasn't a double that rattled around the corner or anything, and Pagan scored from first easily. Everything else is piffle. On other hand, Jake Peavy still being blind might come up...
