-1, the slide was bush league.
He didn't even start sliding until he was past 2nd base and he slid way out of the way to knock him down.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

+1

I don't follow sports much any more, but I was in the doctor's office and saw the replay, and was appalled - and I grew up a Yankees fan.

The umpire should also be suspended.

Definitely looks like the slide was to take him out, not going for the bag at all.

And Utley has a history. Not a Mets fan, and I agree with the decision.

I agree that he should be suspended.
Do you think he is being suspended because of the act or because of the result?

What do you all think about the call?
I think they may have gotten it right. Utley should have been ejected. But I don't think his interference affected the play at all. Tejada didn't step on second irrelevant of the slide (and it wasn't a "neighborhood" play because the throw pulled him off the bag). And I don't think he had a shot at the runner at first either way.
Life isn't about checking the boxes. Nobody cares.

Agreed (which is kind of silly).
Tejada walks away from the play and no way he gets suspended

If you shoot someone in the chest and they get slightly injured do you get the death penalty? And if they die?

Of course the outcome is relevant to desicions.

I think 2 games is too little.

Of course maybe I'm still just upset at Olynyk...

You are going to jail on both of them. In this case if there is no injury then it is just JS material and nothing more.

There is nothing good about that type of play. Not sure how anyone could think it is. It breaks a ton of rules, and adds nothing to the game.

They need better rules. He didn't even go out of the baseline.
