Default Matt Holliday's Dirty Slides

He should be suspended. This is not the 1st time. I'm sure Cardinal fans will say it was clean, hard-nosed baseball just like TLR used to say it, but this guy is going to end someone's career.

I would not care if he got hit by a pitch in head tomorrow. This guy is dirt.

Last night's was ridiculous. Seeing the replay, I was shocked there was no apparent structural damage to Scutaro's knee. Hope the MRI doesn't show anything.

Don't know enough about Holliday's history to label him as a dirty player, but I don't know many clean players who make that play.

I don't know, the Cardinals tweeted that it was a "tremendous break up slide to keep the inning alive"

Last night's "slide" was a joke. He jumped over 2nd base and didn't hit the ground until he was 2 feet past it and plowing into the other player.

It's called a breakup slide. If you want to end it, kick him in the face 'by accident'.

His was a breakup tackle, not a slide. He didn't even have a chance to "accidently" kick him in the face. In case you don't remember, gif of the slide in the spoiler:
