This is getting fun: Logan Morrison fires back at Brian Sabean, Buster Posey

Marlins’ outfielder Logan Morrison was on Sirius/XM with Casey Stern and Jim Bowden this afternoon, talking about the Buster Posey/Scott Cousins collision and Brian Sabean’s comments from yesterday. Not surprisingly, Morrison pulled no punches, especially with respect to Sabean:

“First of all, it’s wildly unprofessional for him to make any comment on the situation. When has he played in the big leagues? When has he played in the minor leagues? Correct me if I’m wrong but he’s never been in a situation like that. It’s terrible. Why would you wish anything like that on anybody? ... He’s taking this very hard without the comments that [Sabean]’s made. He’s getting death threats from people. This is his hometown, San Francisco. He’s worried about his family and his friends that are there. And now he’s going to make comments like that? It’s ignorant, it’s inappropriate and he has no idea what the hell he’s talking about.”

He went on to say that, while he understands that Posey may be angry about all of this, he should “be the bigger man” and accept the phone calls Cousins has been trying to make to him to apologize. When prompted by Stern, Morrison agreed that Posey was being “very immature and unprofessional.”

And really, I can’t disagree with any of it.
