I have changed my background back from Pirates because it’s honestly hard not to be a Giants fan right now. So today I’m talking Buster Posey
San Francisco has always been a bit of a crazy city… sometimes more than a bit. But in the past few months the sanity level has plummeted. The city has gone totally, totally crazy. It has become entirely BUSTER crazed. To the extent that for many fans, it seemed his streak mattered more than the Giants winning.
In a way, I get it. We are fans who have watched a team lose 1-0 for season after season now, and someone who actually hits, is pretty exciting, but I think there are a lot of shifting pieces that are making the team succeed and Posey is just one of them. Granted, a very impressive and big one, but just one.
I think it’s important to remember Huff, Torres, Wilson, Bumgarner and others who, at times, have been helping the Giants win. It’s never one person who loses a game, even if that one person lets in the game winning homer and it’s never one person who wins a game, even if they hit the game-winning grand slam.
Again, Buster is amazing out there. Fun and exciting to watch and his made his mark on Giants rookie history, even though he didn’t pass McCovey. I just find it funny how he’s become the lucky charm of the Giants. Not complaining. And if the lucky charm takes us to a division title, then I will really not complain.
Watching Fox Saturday Baseball today, though, I noticed Buster’s look-alike. Take a look:
I know Chad Billingsley is a (boos resound) Dodger, but seriously it was the funniest thing when Buster way playing first and Billingsley was the runner. Twins separated at birth, maybe?
As seen by my last post, I am sad to see Martinez go. Big fan of his. Even though I was at the 11-0 loss last year. Don’t know a whole lot about these two relievers we got but hopefully it’ll be good. If nothing else, Sabean’s confidence should be contagious.
p.s. The three man broadcast booth on KNBR on Satuday? Made me desert Fox for a while. Heaven.
