Giants Apologize On Behalf Of Brian Sabean

The San Francisco Giants released a statement on Friday regarding general manager Brian Sabean's comments regarding Scott Cousins:

This is a very emotional time for the Giants organization and our fans. We lost for the season one of our best players to a serious injury and we are doing everything we can to support Buster Posey through this very difficult time. We appreciate Scott Cousins’ outreach to Buster Posey and to the Giants organization.

Brian Sabean’s comments yesterday were said out of frustration and out of true concern for Buster and were not meant to vilify Scott Cousins. Brian has been in contact with Florida Marlins General Manager Larry Beinfest to clarify his comments and to assure him that there is no ill-will toward the player. He has also reached out to Scott Cousins directly.

Taking that in chunks, and translating through Google Translation's press-release-to-English option ...

Brian Sabean’s comments yesterday were said out of frustration and out of true concern for Buster and were not meant to vilify Scott Cousins.

"Brian Sabean's comments yesterday were said out of a belief that no one would really listen or care other than the partisan fans he thought he was addressing on a local radio show."

Brian has been in contact with Florida Marlins General Manager Larry Beinfest to clarify his comments and to assure him that there is no ill-will toward the player.

"Brian has left a message to Florida Marlins GM Larry Beinfest asking if Wes Helms is available, and if he can play shortstop."

He has also reached out to Scott Cousins directly.

"He reached out to grab Scott Cousins and put him in a choke hold, but the attempt was unsuccessful because Cousins is a professional athlete, and Sabean is totally psyched about getting his AARP membership card next month."

Now that Sabean has apologized through a proxy, I'm sure this is totally the last time we'll hear about this story.
