A least McRae touched the bag (yes, it was worse).  Utley should be suspended as long as Tejada is out, plus  two games.  Utley I don't think has touched the bag yet.  It was pretty ridiculous in terms of lateness. Hand touches the bag, I don't really have a problem with it.

Has there ever been a felony assault charge filed for a slide to 2nd?

Or in this case, flight over 2nd

They're letting Utley play tonight to hype the game and increase the ratings.

At least they are ahead of the Ravens.  Heading out to Cincy in early November and wondering what the mood will be like out there. They still seem doomed for playoff failure to me.

If I were a second baseman/shortstop, the first guy who tries to slide into me gets a cleat in the face.

It Allows you to broadcast live video from your phone.

Neither. Try Jims Steaks at 4th and south.  And they have indoor seating.

I was in Philly...once.  I took a wrong turn looking for a gas station and ended up in Camden.

It's not at all likely I'm going back...ever.

Do they deliver?   :D

No one really wants to be in Camden.  I don't go that often anymore.  We had a hoagie instead of a cheese steak last time we went.

REALLY? I hate Utley as much as the next Nats fan. But to more, that slide was no different than 100s of other slides that happen all season long. Certainly no worse than Coghlan's slide into Kang. But it was on National TV and Tejada got seriously injured.

Illegal? Sure, it's text book interference. But it's never enforced. Unfair to penalize Utley with a suspension now.

Exactly.

It was dirty in that it was late and Utley didn't even come close to the base. But there was no intent to injur. In fact, Tejada is mainly responsible for that. He spins when he shouldn't have and puts himself in a much more vulnerable position. No suspension necessary, simply enforce the rule that exists. If you have to review it then review.

I agree except where you say Tejada should shoulder responsibility. :smh:

Every player has a responsibility to protect themselves. We've certainly given Harper enough crap about over the years.

If he drags the foot across the base like you're supposed to, he probably doesn't get hurt. He also gives himself the opportunity to fall down on to Utley, with his elbow leading the fall directly in to Ultey's nose.
