During a recent interview, Giants GM Brian Sabean talked about Scott Cousins, the player who collided with Buster Poster. In addition to the article linked in the title, here is the audio version
- "If I never hear from Cousins again or he never plays another game in the big leagues, I think we'll all be happy."
- "He chose to be a hero, in my mind, and if that's his flash of fame, that's as good as it's going to get, pal. We'll have a long memory."
- "You can't be that out-and-out overly aggressive. I'll put it as politically as I can state it: There's no love lost and there shouldn't be."
And this is a general manager saying these things. Basically ensuring that the Giants retaliate and that this kid deserves it for simply playing hard and within the rules.
It would be one thing for a fan to say things like this, but the GM? This guy doesn't seem to have a firm grasp on reality.
