A year ago on this date, Buster Posey was injured on a collision at the plate with Scott Cousins (see above video). The injury cost Posey the rest of the season and to this day, the team is very careful about overworking Posey too much back into baseball shape.
The aftermath of that injury was not a pretty sight. As for me, a non-Giants fan, I didn’t have a connection with the team so I didn’t feel enraged over the injury. From a baseball fan’s perspective, I just saw it as an unfortunate injury and nothing more than that.
But instead I had never heard a bigger amount of whining and complaining from an organization in my life. Somehow because Posey (the golden child) got hurt, the game of baseball should change just for him. I thought that the Giants handled it poorly.
