Buster Posey is a three-time World Series champion. He knows what it's like to be a winner, and he wants every other team in baseball to be gunning for a ring, too.
Great news for Phils fans. But shouldn’t every team be in a win-right-now mode? What is the point in showing up if you’re not trying to win? Thankful for being in an organization that wants to win! pic.twitter.com/GoDYBYXpEJ— Buster Posey (@BusterPosey) February 9, 2019
Posey is the latest star to show his frustration with baseball's slow offseason where stars like Bryce Harper and Manny Machado remain unsigned, days before spring training. His Giants teammate Evan Longoria expressed his displeasure on social meadia last month as well.
“What team out there wouldn’t want a Bryce Harper, a Manny Machado, or a lot of the free agents out there?” Posey said Friday when asked about the Giants possibly signing Harper.
The last two seasons haven't gone as planned for Posey and the Giants. In 2017 and 2018 combined, the Giants lost 187 games and Posey only played in 105 games last year due to hip injuries. He'll be 32 years old in March and clearly doesn't want to go through another losing season.
As far as the Giants signing Harper, we'll have to keep waiting.
