08:14 AM ET 05.31 | Former Giant Mike Matheny has a unique perspective on the events leading to Buster Posey's season-ending injury. Matheny was one tough hombre who left the game kicking and screaming after a series of concussions threatened his long-term health in 2006. The retired catcher also believes home-plate collisions are part of the game. That said, he criticized the Marlins' Scott Cousins for the hit that ended Posey's season and threatens his career. "He went hunting," Matheny said of Cousins. "Buster gave him an option and he didn't take it. The play wasn't illegal. He didn't come in high spikes or high elbows, but it wasn't necessary. I love the play at the plate, but when a guy goes out of his way to get you, I'm not a big fan of it."

I'd settle for a Jeter thread instead at this point.

Or Peavy and Konerko tag team Red Sox last night thread.

Why would FN put up another thread that won't get any posts?

It was an unfortunate play but 2nd guessing isn't going to make Posey heal any faster.

Good morning Clem, ChiSoxFan

The Chi Sox played a good game but lets see how the other 2 games end up before you get too excited. Though I admit Peavy pitched better than I was expecting.

haha yeah, considering there are two more games yet and the Red Sox are better at the moment, thought I'd have my bit of enjoyment

Nothing wrong with that. You take the good where ever you can find it.

his stuff is really good right now. his fast ball will get better as the season continues. he's gotten a ton of rest and looked good in his first three starts.

He pitched well but with Peavy you almost expect every start to be the one that lands him back on the DL.

half empty kind of guy eh

He had such a tough time coming back that you just never know. Hope he stays injury free and makes things interesting out in the Central.
