Utley play was out of line - Sports On Earth

This one should spark some fun conversation. In my opinion, Chase Utley is the Jonathan Papelbon of position players. He’s arrogant and comes off as a self-centered individual. Well, in last tonight’s matchup against Mets, Utley became the center of attention in the baseball world when he maliciously took out Mets’ shortstop Ruben Tejada, fracturing Tejada’s fibula, which will keep him out for the remainder of the playoffs. Some say the slide was clean, some say the slide was dirty. Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.
