I'm not sure on replay rules on that. They could have done an old fashion appeal but the new pitcher didn't even think about that.

He was called out. Why would he go back and touch the bag. The rule was applied correctly. I'm not saying it wasn't a dirty play, but the final outcome was correct.

I can understand utley leaving the field initially because he was ruled out at first. But to never touch 2nd base and then be ruled safe? Inexcusable.

You don't watch beisbol bro?

Still don't think they should get rid of a slide to break up the double play. There's a difference between forcing the 2B or SS to take an extra step to avoid a slide and therefore a split second extra for a throw or forcing the 2B/SS to jump and that takes power off his throw compared to a late slide that Utley might as well have stayed standing and wrapped up Tejada for a tackle.

Maybe the change should be within arms reach of the bag + a certain distance away from the bag (for example you can't be 2-3 feet away and start your slide). Because the leg Utley tucked under for the slide seems like it was already at the bag when he got down.

There has to be a rule change regarding sliding into 2nd to break up a double play, they did it for catchers but need to do it for middle infielders too smh. Don't eliminate the slide, just regulate it.

Shots fired, not letting this go unnoticed laugh.gif .

Caught the highlights of the slide, unfortunate for Tejada mean.gif and Utley shouldn't even show up to Citi Field tomorrow night. The boo birds will be real loud.

No reason for this to continue.

You should not be allowed to do anything other than attempt to reach base. If the intent is to prevent the double play then it's interference and it should be an automatic out.

Pretty sure both teams were warned there'll be zero tolerance for retaliation.

Hitting a batter won't...actually nevermind. I'll just say I'm not buying the Pedro hit batter vs what he's saying now argument.
So intentionally throwing a 95 mph fastball at somebody's face, head, hands, elbow, etc can't potentially end somebody's career if hit in the wrong spot? Don't come out bragging about hitting guys on purpose and now start *****ing and whining and calling other things dirty.

It was brought up 5 weeks ago, but got nowhere near the attention this on is getting. Granted, it's the playoffs, but people now want utley's head and want the rules changed. I didn't hear much of that 5 weeks ago

utley is gonna get plunk, but someone in the dodgers everyday line up will to. that's usually how it goes. they can do what the giants did 2 years ago, drill matt holliday when the series is pretty much decided on, which was game 7 lol.

Astros making some adjustments.

Quit shifting on Zobrist and they moved out a super aggressive shift with 2 strikes.
