Buster Posey

NL ROY Tracker (Updated) … your move, Heyward

I made it to the park, but a combination of the Giants’ ridiculously efficient bullpen and my fiance requesting lunch (she works on 2nd Street, on the way from where I work to AT&T Park) meant I heard Andres Torres catch the final out while I was across the street from the park, one block away.

YOU BETTER HAVE ENJOYED YOUR TUNA SANDWICH FROM TOASTER OVEN, FUTURE WIFE.

Ahem, sorry for the lapse into Drew Magarish there. My all-caps was stuck because I pressed the Caps Lock button. Funny how those things tend to happen.

Anyway, I made it into the park anyway because I have all kinds of access (namely, everyone was leaving and I just strolled in), and meandered around the happy fans, chanting “Let’s Go Giants” and other unintelligible things. It made me realize that I was probably one of the 10 sober people still on site, as all the others had already made their way out.

OK, enough stalling. You know why you came. To see percentages move around. With no further delay…

Jason Heyward

Buster Posey

Current stats: .313/.362/.511, 17 HR, 0 SB, 22/60 CS, 3.9 WAR

Last night today: 2-for-4, HR, 2 RBI. Posey had the day I called for earlier today. Not quite 3-for-4, but the home run, in a game that moved the Giants’ magic number over the Padres to 2, at a time when no other games were going on early in the day so all the East Coasters were able to watch out without needing their beauty sleep, was huuuuuuuge.

There are three games left, so a lot can happen. But if neither player does anything notable this weekend, the voters may use this game as their last impression. At least they should. Wait, did I just write that?
