I'm sorry for Posey's injury, but I completely disagree.
What Cousins did was based on how the game was going. If he scores there..Marlins take the lead...it's already extra innings. You gotta know he had some extra adrenaline going there. I'm pretty sure Cousins wasn't trying to hurt Posey, but simply hit him hard enough to knock the ball lose so his team can take the lead.
It's just unfortunate on how Posey's leg/body was set at the time that the way he fell ended up injuring him pretty badly.
Again, I'm sorry for your guys loss...as a Cardinals fan and losing Wainwright for the year, I can understand how bad this hurts...but I don't think any rules need to be changed.
If the Giants come back and bean someone and TRY to hurt somebody tonight, I find that pathetic. It's part of the game..and if it was Posey running over John Buck, I think you'd feel a little differently.
