I'm thinking the same thing. We have nothing in the farm system in terms of corner outfielders. The Giants may have to sign him to a 3-4 year extension based on this reality.
Also, the Giants will have to extend the Panda as well and hope the weight issues don't catch up to him
With that said Susac and Panik so far are having a nice year in Richmond.
Having a Susac/Sanchez platoon at C and moving Posey to 1b may come as soon as next season or by 2015 at the latest.
I dont think a Susac/Sanchez platoon is better than Belt at 1B myself. I just do not see Posey switching positions at this point in his career at all.
