I think next year you'll see a rule that you need to slide to the bag (which kinda makes sense)

There's already a rule sort of like that in place.

No there isn't
See Torre's comments here
http://espn.go.com/blog/new-york/mets/post/_/id/111882/joe-torre-offers-mlb-viewpoint-on-chase-utleys-little-late-slide

What we're doing in the [Arizona] Fall League, and I don't know if I'm supposed to say this, but in the Fall League, we're having the players work on sliding directly into the bag, just to see how that works and stuff.

Q. Requiring them to?

Torre: Yes, in the Fall League. This is where we can experiment with stuff. That's where we put the clocks in and stuff for speeding the game up. I just want to be sure. Everybody knew why the play was overturned, right?

I think it goes under interference.

There is an interference rule. There is no rule that you must slide directly into the bag. I think you'll see that next year. See my ETA above

Bring back the hook slide. Where is Maury Wills when you need him?
I just found a new supply of forks!

im still confused about the result
as bad a slide as it was, according to the rules, the ump has to make an immediate judgement call. thats not easy. ok, i get that.
but they reviewed tejada touching the bag. tejada didnt touch it, utley didnt touch it.
why does utley win?

Utley left the field because he was called out.

The one thing I don't get is, didn't tejada not try and tag him because he was called out (that and the fact that Utley broke his leg)

Yes, but...
The one thing I don't get is, didn't tejada not try and tag him because he was called out (that and the fact that Utley broke his leg)
So utley didnt touch the bag bc he was called out. but why should tejada tag him (albeit with a broken leg) if he was called out
so its like shnayim ochzin betalis

Did he or didn't he tag him? Trying doesn't count.

So they went to the replay. He did not tag the bag and the runner was never tagged. How can you call the runner out?
