I watched the replay a couple of times, and it did not appear that Posey blocked the plate. He was in front of it, much the same way Pudge takes a throw. The runner was clear to slide right, but lowered his shoulder and hit Posey. Not as grotesque as Nyjer Morgan, not as far out of straight-line, but still an unnecessary collision. The runner is safe if he slides.
