Zito posts emotional tribute to former teammate Posey


It was an emotional day for Giants fans, players and the entire organization. 

That includes former players and teammates of Buster Posey, who announced his retirement from MLB Thursday afternoon. 

Former Giants pitcher Barry Zito, who was instrumental in helping Posey and San Francisco claim their second World Series championship in 2012, posted an emotional tribute to his former catcher. 

We can neither confirm nor deny, but it wouldn't surprise many Giants fans if he actually could walk on water.
