Custom Card of the Day: Posey Edition
Buster Posey has played in six seasons. In three of them, he's won a World Series ring, in one he's won a Rookie of the Year, and in one he's won an MVP.
Your luck cannot get any better than that.
I mean, I was worried back in 2011 that Buster wouldn't be as good after his play at the plate injury, which made him miss most of the season, but now he's proven himself consistent and formidable, even in odd seasons. He helped carry his team to a World Series last year, and he's become one of the most reliable catchers in the NL, possibly in baseball.
Only sucky thing is his team's in last.
Maybe it's the division, filled with strong teams like LA and San Diego, promising youth-filled rosters, like Colorado, and fifty pounds of human excrement (and Paul Goldschmidt), like Phoenix. Maybe it's the fact that people like Mike Morse, Pablo Sandoval and Marco Scutaro, guys who helped them get to a few rings, are gone. Maybe it's the fact that it's an odd year.
Either way, no matter where the Giants finish, I think Buster Posey is gonna have a nice season.
Coming Tomorrow- I've done one well-hyped Chicago rookie. Now I'll do the other.
