Buster Posey injury — 

27 05 2011

So, Buster Posey is hurt. We can talk forever and ever about the play (which I will say, by definition, was clean), but I decided to put something together for the Daily Journal Sports page first, before I ramble. Below is what it looked like in today’s edition. Click for a larger view.

So, the idea behind it was the following: Not even a 12 hours after the injury, and the phones at KNBR were off the hook with absurd suggestions on what the Giants should do to replace Buster. And one thing became clear to me: PEOPLE HAVE NO IDEA WHAT THEY’RE TALKING ABOUT. But it of occurred to be that the G Men probably won’t make big moves to replace Posey, and will trust that the team will find a way to pick up the (enormous amount of) slack. The original illustration was composed of mostly players, but Nathan Mollat, Sports Editor, suggested that this was more of a matter for the Giants brain trust, so we made the appropriate changes to the illustration.

Get well soon, Buster. The team needs you.
