We are not surprised here at RMC, we saw Buster play every day and we know that he is a special player. Like battery-mate Tim Lincecum, he has that rare "watch me" quality. Tim is freakish and electric, you watch because you can't wait to see what happens next. Buster is the opposite. Everything he does is relaxed and easy, you watch because he is so damn reassuring. "Buster's back there," I'd think, "it's going to be OK." Or "he's up next, we'll get it done now." Imagine, a Giants fan feeling secure and confident. But that's what Buster brought to this ballclub. Can you believe how poised and articulate he was after every post-season game?
We are so, so lucky to have Buster Posey. After a World Series ring, and a Rookie of the Year award, what's next? MVP? Another ring? Bring it on, Buster!
Jason Heyward and Jamie Garcia were both outstanding and would have been deserving winners. They just had to compete against Buster Posey, and even with a month's head start it wasn't enough. Buster is that good.
