A Blog Post Dedicated to Buster Posey, Express your thoughts and get-well wishes

As all of you may know, Buster Posey was injured in a collision at home plate Wednesday night in a game against the Florida Marlins. He has a broken ankle and torn ligaments. He could be out anywhere between six-to-eight weeks and the rest of the season. Truly, this is a big loss in the lineup for the Giants. Let's hope he will be back before the season is over.

The collision was a clean hit according to the rules of baseball. The runner at third, Scott Cousins, was trying to score the lead run in extra innings. As Giants' right fielder Nate Schierholtz fired the ball home as Cousins tagged up and came towards the plate, Cousins railroaded Posey to try to knock the ball loose -- but Posey never had the ball and had his body was turned away from home plate. The result was very unfortunate.

This is where fans can chime in. Give Posey some get-well wishes in a comment below. I hope to get this comment chain growing. If it grows enough, maybe Posey will see it. Your support for the Giants' star catcher is much appreciated.

So, let's start leaving those comments and get-well wishes.

  1. Buster,

    I hope you get well soon man. You are one of the greatest young players in the game, and baseball is just not the same without you. I wish you the best and a speedy recovery. If anyone can get through this, it's you.

    Good luck with the recovery.

  2. Get well Buster! Our thoughts and prayers are with you during your surgery and recovery. You have been, and will continue to be sorely missed in our lineup, and behind the dish. You are the future of the Giants, and the future of baseball. Best of luck for a full, speedy recovery. Let's Go Giants!!!!
