Keeping Up His End Of The Bargain

Buster Posey, C, San Francisco Giants (Triple-A Fresno)
Thursday's stats: 4-for-5, 2 2B, HR (3), 2 R, 3 RBI

The Giants got a lot of flak when they re-signed Bengie Molina and left the big league-ready Posey, their top prospect, stranded at Triple-A. They currently look smart, as Molina has been fantastic this year (small sample size warning deluxe) -- but to Posey's credit, he hasn't let the situation affect him, delivering his best game of the year Thursday to raise his season averages to .343/.436/.525 while gunning down 45 percent of opposing base stealers. Stardom is still projected, just delayed a bit.


After the jump -- Mike Stanton the masher (wait 'til you hear how far his last HR traveled), a new Pirate who may get called up shortly, a new Phillie working to become an ace, and much more. Dive in if you're interested in prospects -- between this, Keith Law and Jason A. Churchill, Insider's a good place to be.
