The problem is that although the result may not have been intended by Quentin, his actions that ultimately led to it were. No one made him charge the mound or take Greinke down, and had he not done either of those things, it's highly unlikely that Greinke breaks his clavicle. It may not be entirely fair, but TCQ could have anticipated the consequences of his actions before taking them.
