Giants’ Buster Posey Likely Out for Season With Broken Leg

They kept showing the video  of the home plate collision that caused Buster Posey to fracture his left leg on TV last night….I felt terrible for him…he was in such pain and most likely won’t return for the rest of the season.  Here’s a video that shows the point of injury.

After one jarring, brutal collision at home plate, the NL West race has taken a new shape, and perhaps a bright young career has as well.

The San Francisco Giants’ chances of defending their World Series championship took a major hit when catcher Buster Posey, the reigning NL Rookie of the Year, went down with a serious injury in the 12th inning of Wednesday’s 7-6 loss to the Florida Marlins.

The injury will most likely keep him out the rest of the season.

Posey’s agent, Jeff Berry, told ESPN’s Buster Olney he’s going to reach out to Joe Torre, head of MLB’s on-field operations, regarding changing the rules about plays at the plate.

“You leave players way too vulnerable,” Berry said. “I can tell you Major League Baseball is less than it was before (Posey’s injury). It’s stupid. I don’t know if this ends up leading to a rule change, but it should. The guy (at the plate) is too exposed.

“If you go helmet to helmet in the NFL, it’s a $100,000 fine, but in baseball, you have a situation in which runners are (slamming into) fielders. It’s brutal. It’s borderline shocking. It just stinks for baseball. I’m going to call Major League Baseball and put this on the radar. Because it’s just wrong.”
