Jon Heyman of CBSSports.com says the San Francisco Giants and Buster Posey have quietly begun talks about a possible Mega-Deal. Heyman points out that Posey would like a 10-year deal, and it’s not unreasonable since Posey is only 25, and would be 35 when the contract would end.
It could be a big risk to give a catcher a long deal, but Posey isn’t just a catcher. He can flat out hit, he’s won NL Rookie of the Year, NL MVP, NL Comeback Player of the Year, NL Hank Aaron Award, MLB Batting Title, Silver Slugger Award and two World Series Championships! Yes, he’s done all this in just three years, and the 2nd year was the year he was out with his horrific injury. Did I also mention that he can play first base too? This is another way of resting him as a catcher, and keeping him fresh.
“Posey is a once-in-a-generation type player,” says Heyman.
