Buster Posey wins Face of MLB competition

President Obama to pledge fealty at afternoon press conference. Buster Posey was voted the Face of MLB in an impressive display of social media and marketing on Thursday, narrowly defeating David Wright in an online vote. For winning the title, Posey was awarded the satisfaction of knowing that he helped the brand and visibility of MLB and the MLB Network. Buster Posey, America turns its lonely eyes to you. Save us. The award was created by marketing wizards in an underground bunker beneath Madison Avenue, and it was designed to flood your Twitter feed with stealth advertising. You sheep....
Giants spring notes: Posey extends his value behind the plate, Romo reassures Bochy, Ishikawa makes the cover

Giants spring notes: Posey extends his value behind the plate, Romo reassures Bochy, Ishikawa makes the cover

Just a few years ago, it was pretty cool to watch a young Buster Posey squat behind the plate and catch someone like Randy Johnson or Barry Zito. Every bullpen session with a veteran pitcher was an opportunity for Posey… Continue Reading →

Sean Doolittle advances to Face of MLB semifinals, contest still dumb

The Oakland A's pitcher will face San Francisco Giants catcher Buster Posey after defeating Felix Hernandez. I'm running out of words to describe our fascination with the meaningless, "dumb," "silly," "super dumb" contest that is the Face of MLB, which many A's fans have already determined is "fixed," "rigged," or filled with "bots." Yet Sean Doolittle keeps on winning, beating Mariners ace Felix Hernandez in the quarterfinals. Doolittle will face Giants catcher Buster Posey in the semifinals, possibly beginning as soon as Friday at 6 AM. Should Doolittle advance to the final, he would...

Padres Editorial: Is Austin Hedges On The Rise?

Catchers are scarce throughout the major leagues. Especially ones that can hit and play defense. That’s one of the things that make guys like Buster Posey and Johnathan Lucroy so important to their clubs. If you’ve got a good defensive catcher who can even hit a little bit it’s a bonus. MLB.com’s Lyle Spencer, broke […] Padres Editorial: Is Austin Hedges On The Rise? - Friars on Base - Friars on Base - A San Diego Padres Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

Why the Giants shouldn't move Buster Posey to a new position any time soon

Because he's good at catching. Now I just need to write 500 words to support that point ... Baseball Prospectus published something of an academic treatise on catcher-framing, and they figured out a way to evaluate some catchers before the PITCHf/x era, as well as tighten up the catcher-framing they have for current catchers. There are implications for Giants both past and present. Fair warning: I'm going to screw this up. When there's heavy math intertwined with baseball, my IQ goes down 30 points and I start nibbling on the edge of my laptop. I can't even use the English major excuse...
