Today, on the other hand, was glorious.
Posey stood in the batter’s box as Jeremy Affeldt stood on the mound waiting for the Giants catcher to get set. On Affeldt’s first pitch, Posey grounded one to...

Giants president and COO Larry Baer affirmed Saturday that signing Matt Cain is a top priority. Cain said his agents are listening to any offers that they consider to be "fair value."
Buster Posey is healthy again and back behind the plate. Brian Wilson is back on the mound. Freddy Sanchez is back from shoulder surgery, eager to start turning double plays again. Aubrey Huff, he's just back in shape. Back together again as a full unit after an injury-plagued 2011 season derailed San Francisco's hopes of repeating as World Series champions, these rejuvenated...
