      Giants C Buster Posey continues to rake with big Tuesday

      Giants catcher Buster Posey had a big day at the dish Tuesday, going 2 for 4 with a a home run and four RBI in the extra-innings loss to Cincinnati. Posey's power production has slowed in the second half with just four homers since the All-Star break. Despite the dip in power, he has actually been a better hitter, slashing .352/.410/.474 in 196 at-bats post-break. Posey has easily been the most valuable Fantasy catcher this season, and he will look to finish strong despite his team stumbling to the finish line.
