Posey made his retirement official Thursday, announcing that after 12 MLB seasons with the Giants, hewas calling it a career.

Clayton Kershaw who is currently a free agent took some time Thursday to speak to NBC Sports Bay Area about what he admires about Posey. Kershaw respects the future hall of famer a ton:

"I just have all the respect in the world for him," Kershaw told NBC Sports Bay Area's Laura Britt and George Kontos. "I think that's the best way to say it. When you play against a guy for a long time and you're part of the rivalry that is the Giants and Dodgers, obviously there's some built-in animosity towards the other team. We've had our tiffs in the past with other teams in the division, a lot of different things, but I've always admired Buster from afar, I've always thought he carried himself on the field really, really well.
"And now that I've got some boys, I always think about guys I would want them to emulate their game after. Not just how they play, obviously, because Buster was really good at that, but just how they go about the game, how they play, how they interact with their teammates and different things like that, Buster is at the top of the list for me. I'm happy for him and congratulations on his retirement. That's pretty cool that he gets to do that and spend some time with his beautiful family. I was honored to be a part of this. It's pretty cool to be a part of."
