After last night’s home run, here’s what Buster Posey has done since the end of the All Star game:
9 home runs, 32 RBI .443/.509/.79
4 1.303 OPS
With 23 home runs and 75 RBI, season averages of .330/.401/.546 .947 OPS, and all the intangibles of a real leader; and with the Giants continuing to hold off the Dodgers and D’Backs, he’s emerged as a clear MVP candidate.
Only Andrew McCutcheon has an edge on him, and with the recent struggles the Pirates have had, Posey might even be ahead.
