While the Giants have maintained throughout the season that they don't care about All-Star appearances, Posey's recent play has increased his worthiness to be the NL's starter behind the plate. He has hit safely in 17 of his last 19 games; he's hit .338 (25-for-74) in that span. Entering Tuesday night's game, Posey is third among NL catchers with a .280 average, fourth with nine home runs and fifth with 36 RBIs on the season.
