Went onto ESPN.com and they actually have a poll questioning whether last night's home-plate collision between Scott Cousins and Buster Posey was a clean play or not.

Are you fuging kidding me? This is baseball right? Home-plate collisions are part of the game, also this happened in extra innings, great play by Cousins.

poo happens sometimes and it sucks that Posey is seriously hurt, but in no way is this a dirty play and no way in hell should they be taken out of the game.

Agreed.

I'm hearing waaaaaaay to much blather about changing the rules, requiring catchers to play the plate like the other bases are covered (over, not in front).

Don't get that.

I understand asset protection, but lets not further tarnish the image of the game towards greater pussification.

I agree.

Collisions are pretty much part of the game as is breaking up a double play at second.

And I am a die hard Giants fan who has a serious Man-Crush on Buster.



edit: I just saw the replay and now I change my mind. That was a blatant upper body hit. I would be more accepting if it was Buster's fault for being in the base line but he was just in front of home plate like he should have been.

I'm still cool with collisions but this was pretty blatant.

Well of course it was blatant, Cousins was trying to knock the ball loose. He was trying to give his team the lead in extras.

There is no way he was trying to hurt Posey.

If you want to protect your star players, it's simple: don't put them at home plate where they can be drilled by runners.

He wears pads just like football players .. they take 30+ hits a game .. maybe not 30 just like that , but still its relatively simple , dont wanna get hit .. play over the base , if you want to play real baseball play in front like buster did and get smacked like you're supposed to .. you don't have to change the rules just so other players have an excuse to run away and not get laughed at. If you want to fine players for hitting when its unnecessary that's also fine , you don't have to change the rules.

Also a Giants fan btw .. though I don't watch baseball much , just always been a big Bonds fan.

Not really , that's just the heads fining people for hitting when there is no need , like if the throw is cutoff / not there yet.

Someone please tell this to Bud Selig and his thoughts of realigning the league next year.

Change usually sucks when it comes to baseball. WC sucks, DH sucks, expanding to 162 games sucked, etc...
