Buster Posey Fights for His Pitch

With Wendy and Argyle leading the charge, and Ben and Eno picking up the rear, Fangraphs has become a regular Giants cheering station. Here's one I missed. Sullivan talks about Buster's AB vs. Blanton during the Dogs series. Leading off the bottom of the sixth, Posey homered on the tenth pitch of his at-bat. The count was 2-and-2, and after the first three pitches, the count was 1-and-2. Posey fought back, and here’s what Blanton had to say about the showdown: "That’s one of the best at-bats I’ve ever had off of me," Blanton said. "I threw him at least five put-away pitches, I thought, and he just kept fouling them off." When players throw around words like "best" and "ever", whatever happened is worthy of closer examination, which is what we’re doing here.
