|Buster Posey eager to work with seven-time MVP |
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
(2/23/14) Former seven-time NL MVP Barry Bonds will be in Giants' camp in March as a spring training instructor. Catcher Buster Posey, who won the NL MVP award in 2012, said he is looking forward to what Bonds has to say, according to the San Francisco Chronicle.
"I’m excited just to listen, for sure," Posey said. "From talking to people that either coached him or played with him, everybody said he had a very straightforward, simple approach. To me that’s a huge part of hitting, trying to keep things as simple as possible."
Asked what specifically he could learn from Bonds, Posey said, "Some of it’s probably mechanics, some of it’s probably approach, maybe picking up a little drill that he used to do -- anything that can possibly improve the game."
|Buster Posey put on 10 pounds this offseason |

(1/31/14) Giants catcher Buster Posey put on 10 pounds of muscle during the offseason, according to the San Francisco Chronicle.
Posey is hoping the weight gain will prevent him from wearing down at the end of the year. Though Posey did not admit to wearing down last season, he hit just .244 during the second half. Posey hit .294/.371/.450 in 520 at-bats last year.
|No plans to move Buster Posey to first base full time |
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
(11/17/13) Giants general manager Brian Sabean confirmed during last week's GM meetings that the organization has no plans to move catcher Buster Posey to first base full time, MLB.com reports.
Posey has made 50 appearances at first base over the last two seasons, and the Twins announced this week that catcher Joe Mauer will be moved to first base permanently for health-related concerns, but the Giants aren't going the same route with a player they have signed through 2021.

MLB officially enacts new home plate collision rule
Major League Baseball has not outright banned all collisions at home plate. Instead, the new rule only targets the truly unnecessary collisions.
|Fantasy owners exhaled in relief during the offseason when the Giants announced they would not be moving Buster Posey to first base full time in 2014. While the news wouldn't affect Posey's catcher eligibility in 2014, it might have threatened it moving forward. But for now, you can rest easy. While Posey does have Fantasy eligibility at first base, his greatest value is as a catcher because he's one of the top offensive backstops in baseball. Posey didn't quite match his MVP numbers from 2012 last season, but he still had another productive campaign. Posey hit .294 with 15 home runs, 34 doubles, 61 runs and 72 RBI. He finished as the third-highest scoring Fantasy catcher behind Carlos Santana and Jonathan Lucroy. Posey was averaging 19 Fantasy points over the first 15 scoring periods before dropping to 10.3 Fantasy points over the final 11. He was having an MVP-like first half (.325/.536/.931) before tailing off dramatically in the second (.244/.310/.643). His disappointing second half might linger in your mind Draft Day, but don't let it cloud your judgment. Posey is still an elite Fantasy catcher and early round selection.
