They had a chance to practice against the Padres, then the Braves, and also the Phillies. And yet even on the fourth attempt, the Wilson-Posey embrace was still awkward.
Maybe it’s that Posey is used to his college days, when he was the closer. Maybe it’s that Wilson’s first instinct is to go into a defensive martial arts stance when anyone runs toward him. Maybe Aubrey Huff threw off the timing by getting his thong-clad crotch uncomfortably close to Wilson.
Something to work on during spring training, fellas.
