On the most difficult Giants pitcher to catch:Buster Posey: Hardest guy.. Depends on the night. Depends on whos got there A game. You know probably the one that I had to adjust to the most was Timmy just because his stuff is so different. A lot of deception, a lot of moving parts and you see what it does to other teams.
