I hate to be the kind of guy to say that, but now any chance to defend their title is obviously in jeopardy.
…. Giants star catcher Buster Posey is likely out for the season with a fractured bone in his lower left leg suffered during a collision at home plate with Florida’s Scott Cousins.
…. Posey had already taken several hard foul tips off his mask and legs this season, even leaving one game for precautionary reasons to make sure he didn’t have a concussion. Some observers have argued a slugger of his caliber shouldn’t be behind the plate, where
hits can be routine, and this injury surely won’t do much to quiet that sentiment.
Posey himself has always shaken off those remarks, saying he was born to play catcher and loves his position.
