Buster Posey (SF) – There is not a bigger park shift in baseball than the one the Giants experience when they go to Coors Field. Their home park deflates run scoring by approximately 25 percent below the league average and Coors Field inflates it by over 40 percent above the league average. As a result, the Giants hitters all see tremendous boosts in value, more so than any other team that comes to Colorado. Posey is otherworldly against LHP but he’s still really good against RHP (.356 wOBA, .152 ISO since 2012) and those numbers have largely been produced in a terrible offensive environment. Eddie Butler has not shown much reason for optimism in his small sample in the big leagues. He’s walked (10.7 percent) as many RHBs as he’s struck out (10.7 percent) and he’s allowed a 22.2 percent LD Rate and .321 wOBA to RHBs. Posey is expensive but the gap between him and other catchers is immense on Friday. He ranks inside our Top 10 overall hitters and there isn’t another catcher inside our Top 60 and just two inside the Top 100.
