Send Buster a Get Well Message



    The Giants are helping fans reach out to Buster Posey.

    They have set up an official place for people to send messages to the injured player. The team said late Thursday that Posey has torn ligaments in his left ankle and a fractured fibula bone. Giants' trainer Dave Groeschner said the fracture should heal normally, but that the ligament tears will likely require surgery.

    The team isn't saying he's out for the season, but admit Posey will likely be sidelined "for awhile."

    Here's the link to the Get Well Buster card.

    Posey was hurt while guarding home plate against the incoming Marlin's Scott Cousins. The two crashed into each other and Posey's ankle turned in the collision. To add insult to injury Cousins scored the winning run on the play.
