    Correct Me If I'm Wrong



    There was a game earlier this season with the Detroit Tigers involved. Similar play to Utley situation.

    According to the MLB Replay Rule System... you aren't allowed to review a "Neighborhood Play" at 2nd base. The reason why I know this... Ausmus tried to get the umpires to review a call at 2nd base. Player dropped the ball... but umpires called him out. They told Ausmus you aren't allowed to review a "neighborhood play" at any base.

    So why did they review the play??? And then overturn it? Weird.

    A big discussion on this happened on Fox, in the after-game show. Some Hispandex dude was like: "oh, the poor kid, that play jeopardized the future of his (10) kids", and some white dude replied: "look Mexican, this is an American sport and this is how it is supposed to be played, quit your whining". That was funny like hell. Gotta say, I am gonna be watching the next game, if I can. Utley did what he needed to do, btw. Too bad, but sh.t happens. Tejada will still make babies, his penis is intact.

    Nothing to see here - hard slide, series now 1-1 - best 2 of 3 to advance. Next season Utley will get a fastball upside the head when LA meets NY for first time. Till then moot point...

    Harvey has to bean one of these guys right?! Howie ain't doing anything, Seager goes down swinging then lay one on Gonzo, Mets and crowd will be fired up after that!

    Not even close to a legal slide. One of the most blatant interference calls I've ever seen in my life.

    If you know you're out at 2nd, you try to break up the double play. If you have a chance to beat the fielder to the bag, your strategy should be to get to the bag. I don't think it was that bad. Tejada wasn't paying attention. That is on him. Doing a pirouette when trying to execute a double play will get you injured.

    He slid extremely late and high. Ridiculous as he's a second baseman himself. Somebody will take him out at 2nd next year and send him into a lifetime of paralysis, because that's what this entitled little white shit deserves. He thinks he can do whatever he wants. Utley is your typical SoCal douche without any regard for playing the game the right way.

    Collins shouldn't hit anybody in this series. Next time Utley strikes out, the catcher should turn and bean him in the back of the head instead of throwing it to 3rd. penetrate this piece of shit.

    Go figure, never would have guessed Utley was an asshole.
    The asshole play woulda been not to slide the way he did. They pay him to play winning baseball. That's what he did.

    You're right, you can't review a neighbourhood play. They said this wasn't considered a neighbourhood play because the the throw from Murphy pulled him off the bag and that's why they could review it.

    im a met fan and i thought this was a good hard baseball play. since being a little kid we are taught to take out the 2nd baseman was the slide late yes. have we all seen worse absolutely. murphy made a bad toss to the bag that left tejada vulnerable. he should have NEVER had his back to the bag. as a major league middle infielder you know the guy coming in is trying to take you out. that being said i will be at citi monday and tuesday and im looking forward to an insane crowd and retaliation will happen

    Utley made the right play.. No party foul as far as I'm concerned.. Gotta charge into 2nd base trying to bust up that double play which he did in a big game like that.. Solid play..

    Tejada thought he was a ballerina spinning around carelessly with feet planted on the turf, his bad clean play...

    on the other hand, utley saved the doyers season. without that play the doyers lose.

    Didn't get a chance to watch the game. I did see the replays on ESPN. Funny thing is... that player's foot was A LOT CLOSER to 2nd base (tagging it) than the play earlier in the year... regarding the Tigers. To me... it should still be a "neighborhood play" and not be reviewable. I hate inconsistency in regards to officiating... in any sport. Horrible.

    Theres no question that he slid too late. Does it happen often, sure but this one was pretty bad. That being said, he wasnt trying to injure him.

    Sport(s) are certainly changing. Concussion protocols, media coverage, lawsuits, research etc will continue to slowly change things. Personally I grew up running the catcher over and trying to murder the ss turning the dp, but I understand things change and at least from a health standpoint can be better for guys after they are retired or protecting their careers.

    The uproar over this will no doubt cause some changes to the rules.

    ^^^Yep, back in the day you could run full speed into the catcher at home plate with every intention to kill him.. Now you catch shiiit for a wide slide into second base to break up the double play..

    I don't like Baseball changing rules and getting away from the contact aspect of it.. These plays make MLB exciting. Violent collisions at the plate I miss.. ...
