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

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 →

Tuesday’s Giants, Diamondbacks lineups and more Posey fun facts

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...

Roger Kieschnick was designated for assignment to make room for Juan Gutierrez. Opening Day is on Monday. There's only one more shopping day. Don't be stuck buying presents at a CVS or something five minutes before first pitch. Here are the players who will be on the Giants' 25-man roster when they face Arizona in the weird half-opener that's at night for some reason: Catchers Buster Posey Hector Sanchez Infielders Ehire Adrianza Joaquin Arias Brandon Belt Brandon Crawford Brandon Hicks Pablo Sandoval Outfielders Gregor Blanco Michael Morse Angel Pagan Hunter Pence Juan Perez Starting...

Projecting Buster Posey's 2014 season

Projecting Buster Posey's 2014 season

How will Buster Posey do this year? This fanboy dial goes to 11. Someone on Twitter yesterday called me a wet sandwich. I deserved it. The end of the spring has turned me into a fearful, timid curmudgeon. Everything is broken. Everything is ruined. The Niners will save us all, but not until August. This season is going to be one long earned run. Except, hold it, the Giants are in second place in the Cactus League, winning at a 97-win pace. Which means nothing, considering players like Mark Minicozzi and Rando Moreno are contributing to those wins. But not everything can be bad, not if the...

San Francisco Giants Link Dump, 3/21

Baseball ProspectusEVERYTHING HERE IS FREE TODAY GO YOU CHEAP BASTARDS GO GO GO Video: Posey's grand slamBuster Posey hit a grand slam last night, so all is right with the world. Watch the way the ball never even really gets up in the air, instead hurrying out on a line. Listen to the Padres announcer forget that grand slams are exciting for several seconds because his soul was just a little bit crushed. Feel the excitement in your chest: In a couple weeks, we'll be able to...
