Buster Posey is dealing with hamstring tightness


Buster Posey is out of the lineup today due to hamstring tightness. It’s his second game out in a row.

Bruce Bochy says it’s not serious, however, and that by taking today off he’ll get the benefit of tomorrow’s off-day for a three-day rest on the thing and be good to go on Friday. He’s on track to play in the All-Star Game too.

I wish Posey the best of health, but I wish that publicly speaking it was more uncertain. Because one of the best things all week has been seeing Cardinals fans complain about Posey being an All-Star over Yadier Molina despite the fact that Posey is having a demonstrably better season than Molina. If he was maybe questionable for next Tuesday, I’d expect that drum beat to grow louder, to the point where it becomes pleasantly ridiculous.
