Utley’s take out of Tejada makes for great drama for Game 3 NLDS


If you didn’t like the Dodgers before game 2 of the National League Divisional Series after game 2 you hated them more …Chase Utley’s take out slide was dirty on many levels and basically based on Mattingly’s comments everyone is overreacting. Tejada meanwhile is out with a broken leg and Utley is suspended for 2 games of which he appealed so he can play tonight game 3. Factor in the Mets pitcher Matt Harvey has been under the microscope for immature behavior and missing a mandatory team workout, add the fact that Harvey has hit Utley 3 times in his career when he has faced him, this makes for intense drama tonight at Citifield…The Mets are going to be looking to get a  measure of payback on Utley, beat the Dodgers and take control of the series. This will be interesting to see how this unfolds in Queens tonight.
