PREGAME NOTES: Will slumping right fielder Hunter Pence get a rest day, too? Don’t count on it

From Coors Field, where Buster Posey just took one hell of a round of BP. I predict he goes off this week (Also: he’s hitting .402 in his career in Denver.) Pagan CF Pence RF Posey C Morse LF Sandoval… Continue Reading →

Why Buster Posey and Angel Pagan are out for SF Giants, Posey the bunter, Juan Perez the pitcher and lineups

Buster Posey and Angel Pagan are out of the lineup. Scheduled off days for both, said manager Bruce Bochy, adding he had been planning to rest Posey either tonight or tomorrow. After Posey collided with Arizona first baseman Paul Goldschmidt on Thursday, having legged out his first big-league bunt single, it was an easier decision to have the catcher rest in tonight’s opener against the Rockies. “I’m a little sore. I don’t know if it’s from that or the 4 ½-hour game,” kidded Posey, who started at catcher in nine of the first 10 games and caught the final two innings of the game...

Posey, Pagan get night off, as planned

Catcher Buster Posey and centerfielder Angel Pagan received the night off Friday. They were two of six players that played in the Giants first 10 games this season. Manager Bruce Bochy said he planned to give Posey and Pagan either… Continue Reading →

Dodgers Dismantle Matt Cain, Giants Settle for Series Win

Dodgers Dismantle Matt Cain, Giants Settle for Series Win

The Giants take 2 of 3 after taking 3 of 4 because April road sweeps are just impolite. A credit to the Giants' early season success that it wasn't until Buster Posey struck out on the third straight slider from former Cleveland doof Chris Perez the team's chances of tying the game really felt like they had evaporated. Sure, the Giants would strike out sixteen times and walk zero times tonight, but with the exception of Brandon Crawford and Ehire Adrianza, the Giants never felt more than one swing away from a run. That last part was a great feeling to carry over twenty seven outs. The...

Giants use five-run eighth inning to defeat Diamondbacks

The lineup card on manager Bruce Bochy's desk was without the projected starting second baseman, because Marco Scutaro is on the disabled list. There was no former MVP catcher, since Buster Posey needed a light day at the end of a season-opening four-game series. Michael Morse, the new slugging left fielder, was on the bench so fourth outfielder Gregor Blanco could get some needed at-bats.

Posey drops from No. 1 to No. 7 in jersey sales

A year ago, Buster Posey had the most popular jersey in Major League Baseball and the Giants put two more players in the top 20. This year, they’ve got one — Posey again. Here’s the full list. (Damn it, Red… Continue Reading →

PREGAME NOTES: Posey to sit out Thursday; Will Giants see Wilson this weekend?

Buster Posey won’t catch Tim Lincecum. Let it all begin! (I’m kidding. Please don’t let it all begin.) This one is kind of a no-brainer: Posey will catch the first three games of this series but is scheduled to sit… Continue Reading →

That’s the pitch Buster Posey hit 453 feet, according to ESPN’s home run tracker. It’s the longest homer of his career, although I still think the one he hit off the batter’s eye in Milwaukee in 2012 was a bigger… Continue Reading →

On opening day, Buster Posey is back “on a different level, man.”

For a former MVP, a $167 million man, Buster Posey is almost forgotten. Nationally, they talk about Mike Trout, Bryce Harper and Miguel Cabrera. In Scottsdale this spring, Posey rarely had to open up to an unknown reporter. They don’t… Continue Reading →

SF Giants win ugly opener on Buster Posey’s home run

By Henry Schulman Phoenix – The Giants and Diamondbacks did not have the ugliest Opening Day of 2014. You really have to pin that gold medal on the Angels, who lost hitting coach Don Baylor to a leg injury while he caught the ceremonial first pitch. So give these two National League West foes the silver, and hey, there is no shame in second place. In the only result that matttered at Chase Field, the Giants overcame their own follies and won 9-8 when Buster Posey hit a two-out, two-run homer in the ninth against new Arizona closer Addison Reed to break a 7-7 tie. The Giants played some...
