Just read that headline folks. Soak it in. Revel in it. Maybe roll around in it like it’s some sort of really good smelling bubble bath. Buster Posey is ours and will be for a good long time.

Per the Giants via Alex Pavlovic of the Mercury News (as well as all the usual suspects), Posey and the Giants have agreed to an eight year, $167M extension beyond the previously negotiated $8M contract for 2013, plus a potential club option for 2022, which would bring the total value of the deal to $189M, not including performance bonuses. The deal also includes a full no-trade clause. The deal was, of course, announced during the annual Playa Ball luncheon while Buster was signing autographs for adorable children, further convincing all of us that he really is a super hero. Has anyone seen him and Captain America in the same place at the same time? I rest my case.

If ever there was a time to feel secure in forking over for one of the really nice jerseys, this is it, folks.
