Seems like he could end up missing the whole season.
Buster Posey has been placed on the 15-day disabled list with a broken leg and torn ligaments. He could be out for the season.

Belt a must-add depending on league size now? as mentioned above, anyone know what his role will actually be?

as a Huff owner I'm concerned with Belt coming up. he has been playing OF in the minors, but the Giants are already loaded in the OF as is. Ross/Torres/Burrell/Rowand/Schierholtz. there was some talk recently that maybe Huff could be moved to 3rd?
losing Posey is going to hurt the offense. I don't think replacing Huff is going to help regardless if Belt is the one replacing him, Huff is the team leader in RBI.
I've read some on twitter and some of what I'm reading is interesting. you lose your catcher, but you bring up Belt. unless Belt or Huff or someone else can catch, someone else who already starts is going to lose playing time for Belt.

we obviously have different definitions for "loaded."

I'm trying to figure out the weather from the box on the left side of the cafe.

Is Boston at Detroit raining? I hope the game doesn't get ppd again. :-C
