Interview With Fantasy Baseball Hot Stove
We recently were approached by Fantasy Baseball Hot Stove for a quick interview talking Bengie Molina, Buster Posey, Pablo Sandoval and Madison Bumgarner. Here is one of the questions, the others can be seen right here.
"FBHS: With Bengie Molina really struggling of late, do you foresee any plan to make Buster Posey the regular catcher?
GBB: The Giants are definitely starting to ease him into the position. Posey has been on fire since his call-up and it's becoming more obvious with each day he plays that he needs and everyday spot right now. A lot will depend on how the team is doing though too. If the Giants are in the playoff hunt come August and September, then Molina will be playing, he's too valuable to the pitching staff even when he's struggling offensively. However, if they do fall out of contention, I'd be surprised if Posey's not preparing to take over the full-time catching spot in 2011."-FBHS
Giants Split W/ Reds: Unfortunately, the Giants couldn't finish off Cincinnati, losing the final two games of the series and ending up with a 4 game split with the one of the biggest surprises in the National League. There was some good to come out of those last two games though. Buster Posey hit his first bomb as a big leaguer, and continues to make multi-hit ballgames look routine. Also, Aubrey Huff has really gotten comfortable in the middle of the Giants lineup and has his average up over .300 and just hit his team high 8th home run. I'd really like to see Pablo Sandoval heat up in front of him, cause Burrell/Uribe/Posey/Sanchez/Torres are all hitting and the Giants lineup could actually be decent with the Panda playing like he should.
