Where did Buster Posey's power go?

Buster Posey's power's not here, man. This was a good day: Your browser does not support iframes. The Giants were behind early because they were a bad team that was going to lose the Wild Card Game. Buster Posey helped them out of that. On the last day of the regular season, the Giants beat the Padres with the help of a Posey dinger. That was Sept. 28, which was 25 days and 12 games ago. It was the last extra-base hit Posey has had. It's not that Posey is hitting horribly. He has a .288 average with five runs batted in, though his Win Probably Added suggests that he's done more to hurt the...

Tim Flannery admits he might have to give Buster Posey the stop sign

Out by PlentyRoyals catcher Salvador Perez throws out Buster Posey trying to score from first base in the first inning of Game 1. Third-base coach Tim Flannery, proud of his aggressive approach sending runners home, said Wednesday he might have to treat Buster Posey more conservatively after the catcher was thrown out at home for the third time in the postseason in Game 1. “I’m probably going to have to hold him,” Flannery said. At the same time, he said, “If people want me to hold everybody, we have to keep hitting. It works both ways. They held a guy at third with nobody out and he...

Panda’s double, Pence’s HR give Giants 3-0 lead in Game 1

From Chronicle Staff Writer Susan Slusser at Kauffman Stadium It’s a sea of blue here in Kansas City, and the fans – 29 years after the last World Series game here – have been loud, loud, loud. The first inning has quieted things down, though: Pablo Sandoval smacked an RBI double off “Big Game James” Shields (Buster Posey was thrown out at the plate on the play after being sent in by third-base coach Tim Flannery). Then Hunter Pence belted a 3-2 fastball out to center, and just like that, after the top of the first, the Giants lead 3-0.

The post-Derek Jeter era: The next face of Major League Baseball can't be scripted

Is San Francisco Giants catcher Buster Posey destined to become the next "face of major league baseball" and is it even worth trying to figure out who will fill that recently vacated role?

Reluctantly, We Pick Giants Over Royals In Seven

Honestly, we really want the Kansas City Royals to win the World Series. If the Giants win, it will be three rings in five years—overshadowing the Red Sox achievement of three in ten years. But, if we look at the series with our heads and not our hearts, we have to conclude that San Francisco will prevail in seven games. There are many reasons for this: the vast experience advantage of the Giants; the incredible hot-streak of Madison Bumgarner; the 'clutchness' of players like Buster Posey, Hunter Pence and (perhaps future Carmine-Hoser) Pablo Sandoval. All of this will outweigh the Royals'...

Buster Posey told Michael Morse to just “touch” the ball. Easier said than done against Pat Neshek, who was perfect in this series until that point. “I still can’t believe Morse hit that ball out. I couldn’t pick Neshek up,”… Continue Reading → 

Buster Posey gets up to 18.9 MPH while scoring from second. What does that mean?
