I love him as a player, but he's got too weak of a chin for sex symbol material. Also he's straight, married; his wife just had twins (boy and girl) last year. They gave the babies silly yuppie names. Buster was named after his father IIRC, and his parents planned on calling him "Buster" from before he was born so he's had the nickname his whole life.
I'm surprised Joey Votto isn't popular on DL; he's one of us and he's the star player of the Reds, who are in the playoffs.
That Buster Brown looks like he's 11 and just got his braces off.
This Votto guy, however, is actually a man. Hubba hubba.
R12, Longoria is a really common last name.
Each of these boys gets talked about to some degree on the baseball threads....if you look at them at all.
There is no dirt on Posey who seems to be a very decent and clean living guy with a little boy face.
Joey Votto has had a fair amount of gay speculation about him going back for many years.
Evan Longoria hasn't had much gay talk, but did have a nice cock pic released several years ago.
And all three of these guys play their positions better than just about anyone in the game.
We're talkin' baseball, from Maine to San Diego
Talkin' baseball, Mattingly and Conseco
Ken Griffey's grotesquely swollen jaw
Steve Sax and his run in with the law
We're talkin' Homer, Ozzi and the Straw
A couple of times in the game tonight the home plate ump would wrap himself around Buster as the pitch was coming. When Posey called for a high pitch over the middle of the plate and he'd get into more of a standing squat, sometimes the ump would put both arms around him and squat right over with him so he could get a good look at the strike zone. It was only obvious a couple of times when they showed the view from the side. If it weren't for all of their protective equipment, it could have been pretty erotic.
Because my team is in the NL Central, I see the Reds play a lot and I like them as a team. Joey Votto and Jay Bruce seem to hang with each other more than to other teammates. The camera usually catches them chatting together somewhere in the dugout. I'm sure they are just buddies (and as a younger player, Bruce learns a lot from the more veteran Votto), but as a gay fan I like to think there is more going on there.
Why has no one made a comment about him being a catcher?
Posey's Grand SLam today helped catapult the Giants into the NLCS. A remarkable comeback for SF who lost the first two games of the division series at home. They had to win three in Cincinnati, and thanks in part to the great Buster Posey, they did.
Did he hit a grand slam or something? Someone at work said to me today "Parker Posey Grand Slam!!!". I just smiled and said ok and walked away.
I can't find anything about Joey Votto being a) gay or b) out. I'm calling bullshit/wishful thinking on that one.
He is probably the best catcher out there, but for fantasy purposes Mauer still is number one for me (and he did have a bounce back year).
I was listening to an interview with a pitcher who had played with both Mauer and Posey and he said they were very similar personality wise. Low-key, friendly to everyone etc.
Yea, Buster is a cutie. Actually, there are a number of good looking Giants - Crawford, Theriot, Pence (though his height does come into play for me) among others. While watching the game, I did notice Votto. Very clean cut but quite doable. As for Bruce, I just wanted him out. He got, what, 11 pitches before he got out???

He's a gay??
I'm getting old. The last few years the high school cross country team running shirtless thro town did nothing for me, they looked like middle schoolers and this Buster Posey kid looks like a kid.
Is he any relation to Posey McGlinn, who tried to frame Blanche Devereaux for murder?
No, but I hear he is the nephew of Brad Posey.
The only gay SF Giant we should be talking about here is Brian Wilson, my future husbear. He's been on the DL all year but will be back out next season.
Brian Wilson lost me a bit when he went from being eccentric to what seemed to a more calculated eccentric. There seemed to be a point where he was no longer doing things because it was who he was, but because he wanted the attention.
r29, relax. Brian Wilson is entertaining and plays up the homoeroticism unlike any other ball player has done before. We like having him around.
In contrast, Buster Posey is the picture of awe-shucks boyish innocence. The SF Chron did a story on which neighborhood each player belongs. Posey landed in my own Beaver Cleaver 'hood, while Wilson was everyone's clear, favorite choice for Folsom St/SOMA.
Gotta love our boys.
What's the Beaver Cleaver hood? What is Tim Lickcum's neighorhood?
I don't dislike Wilson, I just don't find him amusing as I used to. I hope he has a nice bounce back post-Tommy John. It seems like recoveries from that surgery are quicker and better than ever. I hate to see anyone's career cut short due to injury.
Wow, Brian WIlson is only 30? I thought he was late 30s at least.
