Handing out the '25 percent' awards
The 2013 MLB season has reached the quarter pole, and now it's time to hand out some hardware based on the first 25 percent of the season.
|Buster Posey's 2012 season began with a great deal of uncertainty, as he had not played since the previous May due to a gruesome injury to his leg and ankle. The grisly aftermath of the violent home plate collision between Posey and Marlins outfielder Scott Cousins had faded by November, as Posey had collected the National League MVP award, a batting title and a World Series championship. Posey had no problem rediscovering the home run power he established in his 2010 rookie season, as he mashed 24 homers in 2012. He didn't merely keep pace with his rookie level of performance, as he saw huge increases in his doubles and walk rates. The improvement could be sustainable as Posey became a more productive line drive hitter. According to FanGraphs, Posey hit 19 line drive doubles in 148 games in 2012 as compared to five in 108 games in 2010. With the proven ability to hit for power and average and a likely spot in the middle of the Giants' order, Posey is arguably the most valuable catcher in Fantasy, and he is sure to be the first backstop drafted in many leagues.
