Biggie vs. 2pac, Lindsay Lohan vs. Hillary Duff, Bill O’Reilly vs. Keith Olbermann- verbal feuds are fun. And the biggest one of the 2011 MLB season is in full swing.

The wheelhouse of this feud began with the Florida Marlins Scott Cousins putting a big, but legal hit on San Francisco Giants catcher Buster Posey. It knocked the star catcher out for the season, and Cousins later released a statement apologizing for the situation. This led Giants GM Brian Sabean to say some harsh things about the situation.

Giants-Marlins Rivalry Ignited: Logan Morrison vs. Brian Sabean Verbal Battle

Brian Sabean, GM of the San Francisco Giants, was upset about his star catcher getting injured in a collision at the plate.  Brian Sabean kept his mouth mostly closed and let his head coach do the lobbying for slight rule changes- until yesterday.  Some 8 days after the incident, which involved Florida Marlins outfielder Scott Cousins barreling over the Giants’ Buster Posey in the 12th inning of a tied game, Sabean sounded off to Andrew Baggarly of the San Jose Mercury News:

“If I never hear from Cousins again or he never plays another game in the big leagues, I think we’ll all be happy.  He chose to be a hero, in my mind, and if that’s his flash of fame, that’s as good as it’s going to get, pal. We’ll have a long memory.”

How out of line is that??!!

The Marlins Logan Morrison let us know on Sirius/XM with Casey Stern and Jim Bowden yesterday afternoon, h/t (NBC Hardball Talk)
