Buster Posey doesn't expect a whole lot of time off the rest of the year, even if his ankle starts "barking" a bit.

"I think regardless, we're at the point of the year where it's time to push it," Posey said.

There's a simple reason for that. Posey is careful with what he gives away in interviews, but he admitted that he's starting to feel different when the Giants come to the yard. The postseason is fast approaching and the Giants are still in a tight race. Yes, every game counts the same in the standings, but these games are taking on a different vibe — even when the Padres are in the opposing dugout.
