Mets v. Buster Posey


Is everyone aware that Buster's real name is Gerald Dempsey Poser III? I am not quite sure why he goes by Buster, I think it would be way cooler to announced every game with the same name as a yacht club chairman. His initials even spell GDP which I am sure his friends at the Union League would get a good guffaw over.

Personally, I would have voted for Braun for MVP, I thought they had very similar offensive numbers and both play great defense so I would give the edge to the guy with twenty more homers. Unfortunately the BBWAA tends to give the award to guys who hit arbitrary milestones like a batting title (or a triple crown). Anyway let's see how Gerald did against the Mets.

We played the Giants to a 4-4 tie this year but during those eight games Posey really shellacked us. He posted an incredibly .857 slugging percentage due to the 2 home runs and 3 doubles he managed to hit off Mets pitchers in only 21 AB's. Posey was particularly good against the NL east posting three of his highest averages against the Braves and Mets, he also hit better against the Phillies than any other team.
