Giants give Buster Posey the cold shoulder in amusing fashion

Giants' Posey celebrates with teammates after defeating the Reds to win Game 5 of their MLB NLDS playoff baseball series in Cincinnati Reuters

The Giants had just beaten the Reds and their Sun Tzu of baseball tactics, Dusty Baker. Buster Posey’s grand slam in the sixth was a big reason SF became the first NL team to win a five-game series after starting in a 2-0 hole. So what does the team do following the final out? Ignore Posey’s handshake requests. Ha.

Of course this is the Giants’ version of the dugout cold shoulder … they’ve done it to Buster before. All in fun, folks. This team is wired differently than others.

    “This team is wired differently than others.”

    Yeah, ask Melkey about that…

    Look at Buster’s expression, he’s totally in on the joke. This is one loose team heading into the NLCS. They’re ready to take back their title.
