Need some Posey enlightenment, please...

 

OK, I'll start by saying that I have been following prospects and the minor leagues for about a year to 18 months, and most of you guys have waaayyy more knowledge on the subject than myself.  An avid reader and sometimes poster on this site, love everyone's opinions and the discussions that the different opinions bring to light.

 

That said, what are the Giants doing with Posey?  I don't get it.  Why purchase his contract and then not give him some PT?  They started Whiteside on Sunday, and brought him in during late innings as a double switch last night.  Why not take the opportunities to get Posey some on the field ML experience?  I mean, they don't lose anything defensively by putting Posey in instead of Whiteside, correct?  And certainly the potential for a better offense contribution goes to Posey, right?  Help me understand their thinking...
