Latest Update Posey smacks 11th homer in win over Phillies Wed Jul, 23, 06:51 AM
Boasts a fantastic eye at the plate with above-average power and the ability to drive in plenty of runs. Doesn't strike out a lot, relative to his walks. Can also play first base.
Flaws: : Must improve his footwork back behind the plate. Also needs to continue to work on commanding a pitching staff and calling a good game. Injuries are also an issue here.
The Giants backstop is now 10-for-23 (.435 BA) with four extra-base hits (1 HR), seven RBI and four runs scored since returning from the All-Star break. This is definitely the start to the second half that the Giants want to see from their captain, and if they want any chance of making the post season they are going to need more nights like this, which will benefit both the team and his fantasy owners. He is now slashing .286/.342/.441 with 11 home runs and 53 RBI through 329 at-bats. Analyst: Matthew Beck
Posey is once again having a strong season for the Giants compiling a .281 average with 36 runs, 10 home runs and 50 RBI. The Giants will be facing Cliff Lee and the Phillies on Monday. Posey has struggled in limited at bats against Lee going 1 for 7.Analyst: Jonathan Impemba
It was quite the feat and if you had a chance to see it, quite exciting as well. MadBum and Posey will be in the record books for some time now as it's highly doubtful we ever see something like this again. Not with the way most pitchers swing a bat.Analyst: Howard Bender
This appears to be a day of rest before Posey closes out the first-half behind the plate on Saturday and Sunday. Hector Sanchez will bat fifth and handle the catching duties on Friday night.Analyst: David Kerr
