2.19: Raising Arizona -- Buster Posey's first official workout
Of course all eyes were on a Buster Posey today as he fully participated. In this first official workout and I really wasn't anything different from what he's been doing over the last couple weeks but it was still. A significant milestone. The scene of Scottsdale Stadium on Sunday morning with a familiar -- Buster Posey catching a bullpen for Tim Lincecum. It's something they've done countless times before but this one held extra meaning. I think sometime probably in January. I kind of just got past a certain point where it was like I was already you know Ryan I was glad to have that feeling because. I think that it that it took my ankle feeling you get into certain points too good to be ready to. Get back out and do this stuff. It was a little different obviously to see him back there and I don't know I just had picked up where we left off. You know it's nice kind of have intensity that down here and -- -- -- tone of -- just having -- clean -- and everybody. It's and his seasonal work with and -- -- these same things -- -- with the thinking about -- too much -- posters play. -- Their core this team just because he's. On both sides offense and defense and you know. He's just. You know he's there he's their leader. Posey trust the giants' training staff and their plan to ease him back in the catching full time. He also understand their concerns and direction for avoiding future collision at home plate. Mean I wanna make it clear he wasn't watching them play to the game winner. It's so yeah. You know that's that's the Dicey part I guess is -- -- and where you gotta be it is somewhat avoid that. But again you know I think I have to be as instinctual as that's the way I play the game out and try to play offense stinks and some -- instincts come from your preparation and that's thus -- gonna put in a lot of work this spring. I'll figure out of -- I -- and I think it's. A manager. It's my joke -- here certainly don't want somebody there. You know I think most -- -- doing his job -- these. You know these are things that go war on the this spring with them. He accepts the need for him to play some first base this year but considers himself a catcher a long term. Al though he's had experience at all positions. There's one place he won't play center field -- I don't -- them. Other -- him. Now. In -- Over Oakland out there -- Yeah I don't know.
Posey participated in his first official workout and talked with the media after about how his ankle feels.
