Posey not a Giant … yet

There were early reports by the San Jose Mercury News that Buster Posey and the Giants had all but officially agreed on a Major League deal worth $7.5 million. Not so, say the Giants. At least, not yet. “Stories reporting that we have signed Buster Posey are inaccurate. Negotiations are ongoing,” said Bobby Evans, Giants director of player personnel.

To be fair, the Merc noted that the Giatns were on the cusp. That to me meant they had most of the major parts done but had nitty gritty details to hammer out, i.e. negotiations are ongoing.

Plus, as posted on the Merc’s Giants blog, part of the issue is that Alvarez/Boras and Posey and his agent want to have the highest value contract, so that appears to be delaying things as well.
