Two days after Giants GM Brian Sabean caused a stir with his comments concerning Florida Marlins outfielder Scott Cousins, and a day after Logan Morrison ripped Buster Posey for not taking Cousins's phone call, Posey released a statement of his own:
I appreciate the continued support of Giants fans and others as I begin the process of working my way back. But in no way do I condone threats of any kind against Scott Cousins or his family.
As I said last week, I'm not out to vilify Scott. I appreciate that he made the effort to reach out to me on the night of the play, but I was in no physical condition to talk to anyone. I have not been back with the team since that night, so I haven't even been aware of any other messages he's left for me. We all need to move on, so it isn't necessary to have a conversation with him at this point.
My only focus right now is looking forward, getting healthy and returning to catching for the Giants.
Now that this statement, which basically translates to, "Look, I just don't want to talk to the guy," has been released, I'm sure that this is the last time we'll ever hear about this story.
