Dodgers Play Dirty

I fucking hate the Los Angeles Dodgers:

Chase Utley’s dirty take-out slide dooms Mets as Dodgers even series

An old ghost from the Mets’ past reappeared at the worst possible moment Saturday night to change the complexion of this NL Division Series.

If he didn’t carry the nickname already, he now officially is Chase “Bleeping” Utley in New York after the veteran infielder leveled Ruben Tejada on a late slide in the seventh inning to spark a crazed Dodgers comeback at Chavez Ravine.

Tejada was carted from the field with a fractured right fibula that will end his season and the Mets suffered a 5-2 loss in Game 2 of the NLDS, tying a series that will resume at Citi Field on Monday night.
After Utley was ruled safe on a replay challenge at second, the Dodgers scored three runs to shift the momentum of the series.
Michael Cuddyer called Utley’s play a “tackle,” but stopped short of calling it dirty.

“We all know [Utley] plays hard,” Cuddyer said. “I play hard and have done my fair share of takeout slides and have never done anything like that.”

Utley, who tormented the Mets for the last decade-plus in a Phillies uniform, was hell-bent on breaking up a double play and ensuring the tying run would score on Howie Kendrick’s slow grounder; Utley waited until he was nearly on top of second base to begin his takeout slide on Tejada. The run scored, and only adding to the Mets’ misery, Utley was ruled safe at second base after the Dodgers challenged the call that Tejada had touched the bag.

Though “neighborhood” calls on double plays at second base aren’t reviewable, the umpires on the field determined it could be examined as a force play, according to MLB vice president of operations Joe Torre, because Tejada had no shot at the double play. Utley never touched the base, but according to Torre he wasn’t required to because he had been called out before the play was overturned.

Torre admitted Utley’s slide was “a little late” and said he will decide if discipline is warranted.

This play will go down in baseball infamy along with Pete Rose’s slide into Ray Fosse in the 1970 All-Star game and when Giants pitcher Juan Marichal clubbed Dodger catcher John Roseboro over the head with a bat. I’ll be surprised if the Mets don’t retaliate, especially if the Dodgers win the next game.

That shit would draw a 15 yard penalty in the NFL, and probably a suspension and a fine. In fairness, Utley should be suspended at least until Tejada’s leg is healed.

This wasn’t Utley’s first rodeo:

      Denise, Good catches, both.

    • elliesmom says:

      One of the reasons I’ve always preferred baseball over football and hockey is it’s a non-contact sport. Well, that and hot dogs taste better in the summer and at Fenway. This isn’t how the game is played.

  3. leslie says:

    It was vicious. Made me livid and sick to my stomach at the same time. I ended up not watching much after that. You are right to loathe that team.

      I’m leaving for the Chicago Marathon now. What a weekend – the Marathon and the NLDC game within 38 hours of each other. The city’s gone wild.
      The #BLM crowd have even shot and killed a few people to celebrate.

    I think they should have a salary cap equal to minimum wage. Then the players won’t bother hurting themselves or others.

      The partisan witch had better get it shut down quickly; the scuttlebut is that Hillary was doing deals in Libya to help Sidney Blumenthal’s businesses. They have been able to hide most of the crap that was going on but it is starting to drip out. That ignores the strong suspicion that Hillary knew about weapons to Syrian “moderate” rebels.

      • Lulu says:

        News of a huge new oil reserve in the Syrian desert has been published/leaked. Odds are the “moderates” were financed to grab it and overthrow Assad so Syria would not benefit from it. Since it takes years to map out these potential fields it looks like the gun running from Libya, Turkish involvement, the ever helpful front man to Clinton interests Blumenthal were probably running an oil grabbing operation. Too bad the man who wrote a doctoral thesis on petro geo politics saw them coming. Putin knew what they were doing when they were doing it. Now he has stopped them. Morons.

    Question for those who are computer savvy– I keep buying my mom windows desktops. Have Mcafee but somehow they only last about a year. She is 70 and plays pogo a lot. She reads email, news, facebook. No serious computing. She is slowly warming up to a tablet, but she is 70 and facebook is her second teen years. She connects with friends from over 60 years ago. I cannot read facebook at 48 0n kindle without readers. I also think she likes sitting at her desk. I am thinking a macbook connected to a monitor with external keyboard. I don’t want to spend 2400 0n a machine if she might break that. I can get a macbook for 800. I also read the new 10’kindle can be attached to monitor and keyboard. Seriously she plays games, facebook, reads. She voted for o in 2008 much to my chagrin, but is now Tea Party. 2008 woke up a lot of people. Democrats are not what my mom grew up with. Anyhow she is my hero. 70 years old fighting for her great grand childs future. She has spent obscene money protecting a little girl. I believe in parental rights but if you have a chronic history of abuse. Common sense has to come in play. I did the first five years. My mom retired. Halloween is 3 weeks away. N0 candy by edict at school. My mom sat packaging for hours tons of gift bags from Oriental Trading Company that she bought. Fun cheap stuff. She also counted all those box tops for 2 days. Wow was she a bitch. I’d say mom, she’d lose it because she lost count. So dumb counting tags. My mom spent two days all day sorting and counting those tags. Absurd waste of time. Link things to your grocery store card. Agree to accept that a dollar off dunkin hines brownies me 10 cents goes to local school. Those little things on box tops are impossible. You have to sort them check for expiration dates group them. I hate language police so much. I can call my mom a bitch if I want to. Trust me she is. I am being sexist by saying bitch. Can be a term of endearment. I am alive at 49 my mom cried so hard when I told her I was gay. Drama. Then she said are you going to embarass me by marching in parades. God I love my mom. Impossible creature.
    She has given my strength the least I can do is buy her the cheapest computer ever that will not break down in a year. I will buy her two windows one for games one for internet.
    Funny thing I do often call my mom a bitch. We are Irish Catholic. My mother called me a son of a bitch all the time. Love it when some prog gets in my face I am sexist.
    She loves pogo and has won twice I will buy a new computer but how many times can someone with up to date virus protection get hi jacked? Right now you look up something and not a pop-up but a new window opens saying computer will shut down and erase. Cannot close out control alt delete is delayed shuts down but over and over again same warning. My mom is nuts about internet security. Not a pop up but a new tab and you cannot escape. I think maybe go back do system recovery. Ever ask yourself who are these swine that go after little old ladies. Repulsive. Hacking into destroying and violating security. Fucking asseholes. People need computers. These assholes because they can disrupt life. How do they forgive themselves? My mom who in her senescence had a a Target card. She only uses it in Target stores so worried. WAS so worried about using her card ever again. How said is our intelligence community that no one has been prosecuted for that breach.

      How about a MacBook Air? The MacBook doesn’t have regular ports anymore, just one port for everything. Starts at $899, dunno if you can get a discount (I know they do college discounts).
      It would be perfect for FB, photos, etc. Almost as light as a tablet but it’s a laptop.

      • mothy67 says:

        Thanks. I am just clueless about that stuff. I love my kindle. So cheap. No idea how my mom manages to infect every computer she gets. Her pc is in the dining room so I doubt its porn, but who knows. She is an odd one. I got them a 50 inch. She will not pay the extra 4 for HD. Higher price for HD is a scam.
