Re: Buster Posey injured
The game is set up in such a way that collisions at the plate are going to happen. The game dictates that you must stay on the base at 2nd and 3rd, so running through the defenders makes no sense in those cases. On occasion, you see collisions at first base, where the runner can run through the bag, and at times the first baseman gets too much of the bag on an errant throw. At home plate, once you touch it, you don't have to go back. If the catcher is using his body and protective equipment to block it, the runner should, no less, be able to use his body to get the catcher and his protective equipment out of the way. Usually is not a problem, but on occasion, someone is going to get hurt. Nature of the game. Nothing more. I don't have any problem with it, at all.
Talent is God Given: be humble.
Fame is man given: be thankful.
Conceit is self given: be careful.
