It was a milestone day for Giants catcher Buster Posey, who hit live pitching for the first time since May 25, 2011.
I don’t need to remind you what happened on that crappy day.
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...
What’s up with all the Giants-bashing going on these days from the disgruntled and bitter members of San Francisco’s discard pile?

After Feliz hit 22, 20, 22 and 20 home runs from the 2004 to 2007 seasons respectively and Alfonzo hitting 13 and 11 home runs in 2003 and 2004, the...
A subdued Brian Wilson began Spring Training by admitting that he pitched with a sore throwing elbow and a bad hip through much of last season. Monday, a rejuvenated Wilson sounded much more like the prescient, confident, eloquent Giants closer from two years ago who hadn't yet grown his feared beard.
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...
