Sabean implies vengeance against Scott Cousins

Friday, June 3, 2011

image The early consensus after the collision at home plate that ended Buster Posey’s season was that it wasn’t a dirty play. So why did Giants GM Brian Sabean go off on Florida Marlins rookie Scott Cousins on KNBR yesterday? (“If I never hear from Cousins again or he never plays another game in the big leagues, I think we'll all be happy.")

Add Sabean: It wasn’t just momentary anger, either, based on what he tells the Mercury News’ Andrew Baggarly:

Asked if perhaps those words were too harsh, Sabean didn't back down. In fact, he left little doubt that the Giants are bent on getting some on-field vengeance.

"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," Sabean said. "We'll have a long memory. Believe me, we've talked to (former catcher Mike) Matheny about how this game works. 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."

[+] KGO Radio sports director Rich Walcoff weighs in at The Bay Citizen, calling Sabean’s remarks “dangerously irresponsible.”
