Giants’ Posey on the WBC: I’d do it again

Buster Posey passed Johnny Cueto in a clubhouse hallway Friday morning, smiled, pumped his fist and dropped a USA! Posey, Crawford and Mark Melancon returned from the World Baseball Classic on Friday and went straight to work two days after the U.S. team enjoyed a Champagne celebration after winning the title. Posey brought something different back to the Giants, a sense of national pride and a greater appreciation for a tournament that many players dismiss. The competitor in Posey made it tough to sit out Wednesday night's championship game against Puerto Rico, but he knew from the...

Posey thrilled by WBC experience, says he would play again in 2021

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. -- Before he left camp on March 6, Buster Posey was telling teammates and team officials that his involvement in the World Baseball Classic was a one-and-done deal. On Friday, Posey returned to camp with a new outlook."It's a great tournament," Posey said. "If you were able to do it in the actual Olympics, it would be even better. I just don't know how to do that other than shutting down the season. But after playing in this tournament, I would be up for that.

What will the Giants look like in five years?

What will the Giants look like in five years?

Different. They’ll look very, very different. Five years ago, Aubrey Huff was the Giants’ starting left fielder on Opening Day. Buster Posey had played in spring games, but no one was sure if he was ever going to be the same following his injury. Tim Lincecum was a four-time All-Star and two-time Cy Young Award winner coming off a fantastic season, and his career was holdin’ steady. Brandon Crawford was an unproven no-hit, all-glove shortstop who represented the biggest risk the organization had taken in years. Which is all to say the obvious: A lot can change for a baseball team...

Opening Day Lineup Likely to Make History

The SF Giants have a long and storied history. On opening day, Buster Posey will build a bridge between the New York days and the San Francisco era.

Giants’ Christian Arroyo: next piece of homegrown infield?

Giants’ Christian Arroyo: next piece of homegrown infield? Last summer, they traded for Eduardo Nuñez, who played mostly shortstop during his career but played third after Duffy was traded to Tampa Bay. Heck, even Buster Posey played shortstop in college. No wonder the Giants’ top hitting prospect is a shortstop. Not that Christian Arroyo is targeted to play the position in the big leagues, not with Mr. Crawford in the house. “For me, they stressed the value of versatility,” Arroyo said at his Scottsdale Stadium locker. Arroyo was the Giants’ top draft pick in 2013 - he was...
