      Nothing but your opinions. The umps thought otherwise - double play.

        Never mind.
        They call me Mr. Baseball. Not because of my love for the game; because of all the stitches in my head.

          Using David Wright as an example was ridiculous. If David Wright did do that I would have started a thread on what a douche David Wright is, but he didnt. I just dont see any room for that type of "slide", and I am using the term slide really loosely.
          I know the back of both of their baseball cards. I will take Keith any day, he was a winner.

            no they weren't. his shin hits the ground less than a foot from the base and the SS. The vids you posted above show the slides 3-5 feet before the fielder, not nearly the same, it was a late and high slide.

              I have no issue with a clean hard slide to break up a DP, but what Utley did was not clean, it was late, MLB says it was late. The fact that the Umpire did judge it at the time is just hid opinion.... it sucks that it hurt the outcome of the game.

              5/24/2005: "Wright thought his slide at second base had forced a wide throw to first, denied the Braves an inning-ending, 3-6-1 double play and left the Mets in position to win. But second base umpire Jeff Nelson ruled Wright had "intentionally interfered with the [shortstop, Rafael Furcal] in the act of turning a double play" and awarded the Braves two outs. The call irked the Met as much as the loss would. Wright erupted as he disputed it with Nelson, prompting his first ejection since he was in Class A. And the other Mets acted stunned as the Braves returned to their dugout. "I've seen a lot of worse slides," manager Willie Randolph would say later. "You see that call usually when the shortstop gets flipped. But David never touched him. He put pressure on him, but he just threw it away. "We're not playing footsie ball. We teach hard, aggressive baseball. I thought it was an unnecesary call.""

                  Those are merely the biased words of a NY sportswriter. The umpire (Nelson) said: "Wright intentionally interfered with the second baseman. It's automatic." Nice try.

                    oh, now I see you're a Nats guy... no wonder......... since you don't site a source....

                    But second base umpire Jeff Nelson signaled a double play because of Wright's wide slide into Furcal. Television replays backed up the call, showing the runner sliding late and at least three feet wide of the bag in an attempt to disrupt Furcal.



                    his toes are on the ground... not his feet, so maybe you want to check your anatomy knowledge.
