It's finally official ... Buster Posey is the NL MVP & most deservingly so!!!!! While there were several players in the NL who had remarkable seasons, Buster combined superior offensive stats, solid defensive work, & incomparable handling of the Giants' young-ish Pitching staff. Accomplishing all of this, while bouncing back from a horrific injury, made his feats even more impressive.
Catcher is the most difficult position on the field, & the NL was blessed with 2 of the finest all-around Catchers in the game - not just for 2012, but for many, many seasons. In my book, Yadier Molina was the only other real contender for this award. But, it's hard to overlook a multi-tooled Catcher who also leads the league in hitting.
Thanks, Buster, for your fantastic 2012 season!!!!! We all hope that you are an SF Giant for a long, long time - perhaps throughout your playing days, until you're ready to take over the reins as Manager from the legendary Ron Wotus in 2027 (or thereabouts)!!!!!
SF Giants pride!!!!!
