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'...
POSTGAME NOTES: Morse makes good on Bum’s call; Ishikawa has “career-defining” moment; Affeldt shows off the wheels

POSTGAME NOTES: Morse makes good on Bum’s call; Ishikawa has “career-defining” moment; Affeldt shows off the wheels

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?

Giants rally past Cardinals, take 3-1 NLCS lead

SAN FRANCISCO — Buster Posey drove in three runs and the Giants took advantage of some clunky defense by St. Louis first baseman Matt Adams, beating the Cardinals 6-4 Wednesday night to move within one victory of the World Series.

Two reasons the Nationals bats went cold

The Nats lost, and while a lot of focus is on the pitching and managerial decisions, you simply cannot ignore how little offense the team generated. I say most, because Bryce Harper was a beast this postseason (5 for 17 with three home runs and four RBI) and infielder Anthony Rendon tied with San Francisco’s Buster Posey for most hits in the series (seven), but none of Rendon’s went for extra bases. So keep that in mind as we run through some numbers. Read full article >>

A lesson for SF Giants from 2001 A’s: Think ‘win,’ not ‘trip east’

Buster Posey prepares to take batting practice before Tuesday’s Game 4. Nationals broadcaster F.P. Santangelo knows just how the Giants feel right now. Santangelo was a backup infielder for the 2001 A’s, who had a lead of two games to one in their Division Series at home, against the Yankees. I just chatted with Santangelo, and he said the A’s did not have the right mental frame of mind for Game 4. Instead of thinking, “Let’s go out and win a ballgame tonight,” the conversation was mostly, “We don’t want to go back to New York.” By focusing on the possible negative outcome...

How Petit stayed focused, and why Bochy did not run for Posey

Want some good news, Giants fans? Yusmeiro Petit is property of the Giants for another two seasons, eligible for free agency after 2016. If you don’t realize how clutch Petit was, how valuable it is to have a guy who can start, or enter in the 12th and pitch six shutout innings, here’s Buster Posey to tell you. “I don’t think people understand how hard it is to pitch extra innings on the road,” Posey said. “Everything is magnified. One mistake, and the game is over. To go nine extra innings (as the bullpen did) without allowing a run is remarkable.” Petit didn’t just pitch...
