    I can’t believe that Spring Training is almost here!! It’s been way too long without baseball and even longer without you, Buster! It’s easy to see that you’ve been working incredibly hard and you inspire me all of the time. Because of you, I got interested in baseball and it seriously (not trying to sound cheesy or cliche-y) changed my life. It even helped me choose a career path (Sports & Buisiness Management. Someday I will be the first female GM in MLB). You inspire me to be a great person with your character as well! Keep up the hard work and I can’t wait to see you in Spring Training in a few days.

    Wishing you a speedy recovery and good health! My grandfather’s name was Buster, so I’ve been a fan ever since the Giants drafted you. Thanks for all the great memories so far, and for those yet to come. Looking forward to seeing you back on the field.

We love you guys, and will be waiting in the stands to welcome you back with open arms! You, and the entire team, have our love, admiration and support. We’re thinkin’ positive for ya!!! BTW, win or lose, we just love having the privilege of watching you guys play ball!!! : )

  6. Lynn Chelewski

    God bless you and heal you, Buster. We first saw you play in the CWS at Rosenblatt Stadium where you caught and pitched. Couldn’t believe your batting average. Trust in the Lord and lean not unto your own understanding; bad things happen to good people sometimes. You are a baseball legend, and we pray you heal phenomenally!

    Hi Buster,
    Here’s a big get well wish with a little extra in it. As a nutritionist, there is one food that can work miracles for rebuilding any physical injury, and that is BAMBOO SHOOTS. It is the highest source of silicon, which provides the physical and energetic matrix for building bone and connective tissue. Seven years ago, I busted my own foot. After six months of pain and PT that got nowhere, I ate bamboo shoots every day and in one month I had a new foot, painfree. Ever try to break a stalk of bamboo in half ? Very Best Wishes, Zeke

  24. Bev Dittberner

    Buster, My husband and I first saw you play in Sacramento against the Rivercats and
    I remember him saying, that’s a man to watch- he is going far- When you were hurt , it felt like a family member had been hurt- I know that may seem odd, but Bochy has created a team that feels like a family to us fans. We have grown to really care about you all and that is only one on the many many reasons I love baseball.
    Hope you are recovering and please know you are in our hearts and prayers all the time- We miss you and look forward to your return. In the mean time- I hope you are enjoying being home your family, an unexpected silver lining.
    all our best,
    Bev & Phil

  25. Alex F

    Hey Buster!!
    Its me again Alex F.
    Just checking up to see how you doing. I hope your leg is doing great and making a full recovery! We all miss you at home plate and were glad that your coming back next year. Your my favorite player and my hero!!

    Well, I hope to catch you later and enjoy your time off.

    From your biggest fan,
    Alex F.

  26. Bobbi Alanna

    I’m sure you won’t get to much of these, considering you’re working on getting better. But I just want you to know that you’re no alone in your quest to being healthy again. I catch for my fastpitch team and recently tore all the ligaments in my ankle and need to have some of my muscle removed in order to keep the swelling down because of a play very similar to the one you hurt yourself in. Seeing you go through what I’m going through really helps me out and inspires me to not give up. Here’s to a speedy recovery for both of us!

  27. M.g. Hirsch

    We made a cake in your honor, Buster!! Get well soon!!


    Can’t wait to see you back on the field!

    Tough play but a typical catchers play at home right?… very sorry it went wrong for you and I hope you heal up well and better than before, we’re looking forward to your getting back with the team.

    Get Well soon.

    I’m not a Giants fan, but was watching the franchise today and saw the brace/crutches/scooter you have to deal with. Can certainly empathize with your situation. Tore my Achilles recently. Out of commission for 3 months. Crutches suck! You don’t realize how debilitating it all can be until you experience it for yourself. Get well soon.

  30. Alex Fregoso

    Hey Buster,
    Its Alex F. again, i saw you at the game last night, you look better and i’m glad you are making good progress, we all miss you at home plate and hope to see you back there.

    i hope everything is ok with your leg and i hope your having all this time to relax and kick back.

    hope to see you again,
    Your biggest fan,

  32. Diane Kaspari

    Hi Buster, Wishing you continued healing. All your fans miss you terribly!!! You are an inspiration, so please keep coming back to the ballpark when you can this season. It helps. Also Send my best wishes for your babies to be. You will love being a dad. Treasure the moments as they grow up so darn fast. Looking forward to seeing you back at catcher next season.

    Lots of love. Diane K.

    Hey, Buster, It’s nice to see you visiting the ballpark. We’re all waiting for the great day when you return to play again. Sending positive thoughts your way!

    Hey kid, We miss you! Hope you are healing well and will be back behind the plate next season. I know your spirit and energy is helping the guys every day. You bring so much to the game. Hang in there, and do your best to enjoy every minute of being a part of the greatest team in baseball–on or off the field!

  35. Sue Cleek

    Dear Buster,

    My family and I send you healing wishes daily. We are big Giants fans and are especially big Buster Posey fans. I heard somewhere that your wife is pregnant with twins. If this is true, I hope you’ll be able to support and cherish your wife and children during this professionally challenging time. I have twin boys and can think of no time more amazing in my life than my pregnancy and first few months of motherhood. You are a wonderful role model for my boys- they want to be like you! We miss you and look forward to your healthy return to baseball. In the meantime, I wish you and your wife a healthy pregnancy and a miraculous beginning to parenthood.

    Best wishes,
    Sue Cleek

  36. Raquel Govea

    Hi Buster!! πŸ™‚
    So I’ve been reading A Band of MiSFits (great book by the way) & it has made me love the Giants more than I already do & I’ve loved the Giants since I was a baby I grew up with the Giants they’re my team no matter what happens. But because of this book I’ve come to the conclusion that you’re all around perfect. I don’t know if you’ve read it (I recommend it) but it talks about how smart you are, how naturally talented you are, how you’re a hard worker, at one point it says “Buster Posey seemingly walked out of the New Testament.” I’m not trying to be mean, you’re awesome this book just increased your awesomeness.
    Ok Love you πŸ™‚
    Raquel Govea, the Govea family & the Re family.

  37. Katie28forever

    Hi Buster,
    I was just letting you know that I voted for you for the all star game. Whether you are playing your heart out or sitting in the dugout cheering on your teammates, you deserve to be on that team. You are the best catcher in the MLB and everyone is aware of that so, you should be recognized for it whether you are playing or not.
    Get well soon and I hope you are doing well!
    Love always,
    Katie πŸ™‚

    You made last year so awesome. We are missing you now and so upset for what happened. I am so impressed with your “get to work on what needs to be done” attitude. It will surely help in your recovery. This along with the fight we see in your approach to the game will get you back. Thanks for everything you mean to the giants and us fans!

  44. Michael Flitner

    Wishing you a speedy recovery and good health! My grandfather’s name was Buster, so I’ve been a fan ever since the Giants drafted you. Thanks for all the great memories so far, and for those yet to come. Looking forward to seeing you back on the field.

    You are a great inspiration to everyone! You are going to be sorely missed the rest of this year. I look forward to seeing you back on the field in 2012. Enjoy the time off to be with the soon to be newborns! That will be a moment you’ll never forget and a blessing in disguise for you. See you out on the field in 2012 and let yourself heal properly. I look forward to a long career in the bigs for you.
