    The hit was dirty... but I don't see how it was illegal. He was within reach of the bag and was clearly sliding. Too bad he didnít get a concussion.

    You must be happy the Mets knocked off the Dodgers last night.
    I was rooting for the Mets because I HATE the Dodgers more than anything. Plus, beating the Dodgers is the best payback for that dirty but legal slide.

    Utley is a 2nd baseman... he will get his (unless he retires).

    The Mets will be head-hunting him next year for sure.

    I don't think the Mets will wait til next season. They probably won't use a pitcher, they will most likely sacrifice a bench guy to pinch run for someone at 1st. But Utley has to play 2nd base for that to happen. It won't be tonight, maybe tomorrow, but it has to be at Citi Field.

    Utley is not in the lineup for tonight.

    Utley is appealing and it has not been heard. He can play tonight.

    It was a chicken dirt play. Can you say earhole!

    Regards,

    My son-in-law also saw the replay and said Tejada missed the bag.

    It looks like the Runner was trying to break up a double play. Boy did he! The base was tagged and the Runner should have been out.
