- Two World Series rings
- Two All-Star appearances
- NL Comeback Player of the year
- MLB Batting title
- Silver Slugger Award
- Hank Aaron Award
- Caught a perfect game
- Caught a no-hitter
Posey was such a factor in both those no-hitters. He doesnt get enough credit for his game calling ability on a national level.
Its no coincidence that Jason Varitek caught 4 no-hitters in his career, and 7 one-hitters. I have a feeling this wont be Posey's last one either.
Also on a side note, I cant stand the media looking at Posey's CS% and saying hes bad at throwing base stealers out. They completely fail to see that the Giants pitching staff is probably the worst in baseball at holding runners on, and time to the plate.
