It was just two years ago that the San Francisco Giants were crowned World Series Champions, and had a Rookie Of The Year catcher named Buster Posey. Last year the Giants fell short of making the playoffs. Posey was injured May 25th 2011 with a horrific collision at the plate with Scott Cousins. That derailed the Giants chances of back-to-back championships.This year it’s a different story. Posey is back and healthy. He’s having a career year, and is a favorite to possibly win the NL MVP award and is a shoe in to win the NL Batting Title as well. That also smells like a Comeback Player of the Year?Posey is currently hitting .336 with 2 games to go, and Andrew McCutchen of the Pirates is behind him with a .329 average. The last seven days has made a big difference in this batting title race. Posey has hit .429 during this span, while McCutchen has hit .167.This season started with a lot of questions that would only be answered in time. Would Posey be the same player he was in 2010, w...

The Giants and 96 wins

Before this season began, I pegged the Giants to win anywhere from 88 to 90 wins in 2012. Despite Buster Posey back and the starting five looking dominant as ever, I thought they would still struggle to compete with the Arizona Diamondbacks for the top spot in the NL West. Boy, things are looking a little different. The Giants have three games left this season – all agaisnt the...

He is the first Giants player to win the batting crown since Barry Bonds hit .370 in 2004. Pittsburgh's Andrew McCutchen finished second at .327. The previous...

MVP: The ‘P’ stands for Posey

I know there have been countless articles and posts on who should win the NL and AL MVP awards. Trust me, I’ve read almost all of them. I thought I’d give my two cents on the topic – avoiding bias as much as possible. As for the AL, the race has narrowed down to two players: Miguel Cabrera and Mike Trout. Both are explosive, dynamic players who are vital to their team’s success...

SF Giants Rumors: Final Series, Rotation and Pence

Tim Lincecum will be part of Giants playoff rotation

It was not the best season for San Fransisco Giants pitcher Time Lincecum but the two time Cy Young award winner will be a part of the rotation when the playoffs begin. Lincecum was better after the all-star break compiling a 7-5 record to go with a 3.83 ERA and a .243 batting average against. “He’s tough mentally,” manager Bruce Bochy said. “He finds a way.” The San Jose...

Déjà vu: Giants eliminate Dodgers

Posey sends Bums packing Last night, the San Francisco Giants won their 94th game of the year with a 4-3 win over the Los Angeles Dodgers and — like me — Gigantes fans everywhere rejoiced in the fact that the team sent their hated rival packing for the offseason. It’s certainly not the first time these two teams have been involved in eliminating each other from the post-season...
