Giants, Aug. 19-21: Buster Posey
The Sox don’t get to face the Giants often, so there isn’t a lot of personal history here. Still, most Red Sox fans know that 26-year-old catcher Buster Posey is the real deal. Last year’s National League MVP is hitting .303 with 14 home runs. The Giants are having a down season, but Posey remains dangerous. Better to pitch to Brandon Belt, Pablo Sandoval, and Hunter Pence.
