This vector diagram displays a horrible understanding of basic physics. Legal. Clean. Baseball.

Legal hit? Yes. Clean hit? No. Giants fan or not, there is no room in baseball for this. Anyone with eyes can see Buster was OUT OF THE WAY OF THE PLATE!

Quit crying; if your player had taken out the Marlins' catcher on the same play, you'd be fine with it.

Jaymac! Posey is between the pitchers mound and homeplate, as Bruce Bochy had instructed him to do to avoid being injured. not in the baseline.

Cousins has no idea where ball is. Can only assume Posey has it. Has to take him out. Clean hit.

um, agent 37, there's NO way Cousins could know if he had the ball. You need to see the play in real time.

If you block the plate, you seal your fate!

agent37 1056 days ago

um, , look where the ball is - behind poseys left foot.

Whining Giants fans doing what they do. Sucks Buster got hurt, but it is part of the game. Ask Ray Fosse

I've always thought this 'play' to be the most brutal ridiculous in all of sport. Look how vulnerable the catcher is. You have a guy charging at you full bore with dreadful intention. As a catcher you are about to take a full force running charge in a sta

It's a legal hard play. Could he have tried to avoid Posey, yes. Would he have been out, definitely.

Cousins' pro baseball sportsman like play is not present in this definitve image and graphic notations.

i'm horrified by Posey's injury. But rules state running into the catcher to force him to drop ball is legal

WEAK pic. Play at the plate, you can knock the ball free and still be safe at home. That's what he did.

Thats bullshit, the smart baseball play when you are clearly about to be tagged is to take out the catcher, there is no malice there.. Thats the game, hate to see Posey go down but it was NOT in any way dirty..

Cool pic, but the first 2 comments may be better.

circsouplesse 1056 days ago

nice try, but I highly doubt video will show cousins was running towards 1st base at the time...clean play

Look where Posey's glove is. Had he caught the ball, Cousins would have been out with a slide.
