Read the title. That’s really all you need to know. Buster Posey is all that is good and right with the world. His average is hovering ever closer to .300, he’s Captain
America Clutch, and we, as Giants fans, have nothing to do but feel bad for the twenty-nine Buster Posey-less teams toiling in anguish around this great country. Sympathy and kindness to those less fortunate is what Buster Posey would want, after all.
Other things we learned today:
- Barry Zito likes run support. He’s something like 11428974-7 when getting four runs of support or more. Roughly. It’s a number like that.
- Buster Posey can, in fact, catch Barry Zito. Not that I doubted that, but I’m sure someone did.
- Melky Cabrera just hits, nerds.
- In semi-related news to the above, Jonathan Sanchez was designated for assignment by the Kansas City Royals today. Huh. Sorry, let me close this Baseball Reference page so I can focus.
- Hector Sanchez can continually foul pitches off his leg and be mostly fine, but an awkward move back to first to avoid a pick-off is too much. The baseball gods are fickle. Luckily it’s apparently just a sprain to his left knee and they don’t think a roster move will be necessary, though a definite decision should be made after an MRI tomorrow. Feel better, Baby Panda.
- Absolute drubbings of a team that’s actually good are always fun, but they’re extra fun when it happens 1) on a Barry Zito start and 2) to snap that team’s seven game winning streak.
- Buster Posey is good at baseball. Did I mention that yet?
Ryan Vogelsong takes on Mike Minor tomorrow night in game two of the series.
