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