Buster Posey

Buster Posey Saves Kittens And Is Teh Awesome.

By Bryan Rose

I’m pretty sure Tuesday night’s opener in the Giant/Cub series can be summed up in about five words.

Buster. Posey.

Matt. Cain.


That’s about all you need to know.

Matt Cain was pure money again, as Cub hitters danced around all night trying to find some type of rhythm, any time of rhythm, versus the burly right hander. Buster Posey? That kid? Yeah, he only caught a shutout, gunned out speedster Sterlin Castro with a laser early in the game and provided the only run of the game – a solo shot to dead-away center field in the top half of the 8th.

After the game, Posey saved fourteen kittens from a burning apartment fire in Springfield and then magically grew a full head of hair, only to shave off his locks and provide them to needed charity.

Aaron Rowand was so impressed with this, he swung at an outside slider to show his appreciation.

In all seriousness though, just another dominating performance by the Giants pitching, something we’ve come to almost expect nightly. This marked the fifteenth straight game in which the Giants held their opponent to under three earned runs or less. Impressive? To say the least.

The Giants kept their slim half game lead on the Padres in the NL West with the victory and dropped the Rockies to 2 1/2 games behind after their loss in Arizona. For Wild Card purposes, the Braves lost another tight one in Philadelphia, and the Giants would only be a 1/2 game behind Atlanta for the Wild Card if they weren’t in charge of their own division.
