Buster Posey Catches Tim Lincecum, World Does Not Explode

April 20, 2013

628x471

I don’t hate Hector Sanchez. I don’t even dislike him. In fact, if I saw Hector Sanchez on the street, I’d be all, “Hey, that’s Hector Sanchez!”

But the “personal catcher” thing is ridiculous. Buster Posey is an exemplary catcher/hitter/human being. There is no reason he shouldn’t be option “A” for every pitcher, every time. If he needs a day, he needs a day; it shouldn’t matter who’s on the mound.

Tonight proved my point, which is possibly why I’m writing about it. Timmy wasn’t perfect — still, he tossed 6 2/3 scoreless innings with eight Ks and zero me-throwing-objects-at-the-TVs. Posey was behind the dish the entire time. Might wanna note that, Bochy, for future reference.

I don’t know if Pablo’s homer made me react more strongly, but those few moments between when he hit the ball off his ankle and when he got up and stayed in the game were rather hellish. Every team suffers through injuries. Just ask Zack Greinke. Actually, don’t. You might re-break his clavicle.* But losing Pablo, again, would’ve hurt. Bad.

* Too soon?
