    Posey becomes first Giant since Bonds to win a silver slugger award

    Buster Posey's going to need a bigger bookshelf.

    The All-Star catcher, coming off a batting title and eying an MVP, picked up another award on Thursday night as Major League Baseball announced he'd won the Silver Slugger award for National League catcher.

    It's Posey's first Silver Slugger award following his September nomination, when he was nominated along with fellow Giant and pitcher Matt Cain. Also nominated was Marco Scutaro, although Scutaro was actually nominated when he was a member of the Rockies.

    When you compare his stats with other catchers, it's not much of a contest. Yadier Molina is close, but Posey clearly dominated at the position.

    The last member of the Giants to win the Silver Slugger Award was Barry Bonds in 2004.

    I wonder how much better Posey can become offensively. I think we all assumed that a season like this would be his ceiling down the road. He is just a machine.

    I remember telling a buddy back in 2009 you can pencil Buster in for .310 20 Hr 80 RBI for the next 8 years or so.

    You may have sold him short.

    If only he had a desire to take the journey to excellence in earnest (which Posey has in spades) and not an obsessive need to focus on the results, Melky Cabrera might have joined Posey in this accolade. What a shame.
