Buster Posey went 4/5 with 2 RBIs, and a made a crucial catch & out at the plate tonight. It will be unbelievable if this kid doesn’t win rookie of the year. According to Hardball Talk, he’s just the 13th player aged 23 or younger to get 4 hits in a playoff game — and joins the likes of Miguel Cabrera, Derek Jeter, Manny Ramirez, Lenny Dykstra, Goose Goslin, and Ty Cobb.
Uuuuuuribe drove home the winning run in the ninth, giving the Gigantes a 3-1 lead vs. Philly in the NLCS. The Giants put in a true team effort, with eight dudes responsible for RBIs and runs. Burrell, Huff, Posey, Ross, Sanchez, Sandoval, Torres and Uribe — not to mention some sick pitching.
But back to Posey for a second… If you don’t believe how fucking good he is, listen to the first 20 seconds of this clip below. Or you can read this recap from last night.
