    Red card for Rizzo

    How in the the world can you call that a clean slide??. The announcers need a slap upside the head.

    Iím not going to say the Cubs are dirty, but I will say there are millions out there who will make excuses for them if that were the case.

    Looked horrible in real speed like a leg whip or a spike whip.. in slow mo thatís a clean slide.

    Same as going into second line to contact the bag/plate.

    Looked to me like a slide with intent to injure. That's ok...he'll get his.

    I won't say it's intent to injure, I look at it just like a slide to second to break up the double play, it does look worse and I'm sure he will get plunked hard tomorrow and I have no problem with that either, but he was able to stay in the baseline to make contact with home so it's the gray area of legal, but looks pretty bad.

    It really did look bad. I'm just glad the catcher didn't get hurt. Rizzo did make it a point to ask the catcher if he was ok the next time he came up to bat. I really don't think Rizzo is a dirty player. But I thought the same thing about Utley until his slide into second base.

    The text under the power ranking video provides more data points to Rizzo being a turd.

    The catcher is out in front of the plate. The runner is well out of place inside the base line in a situation he shouldnít be.

    Would you have thought the same thing if it was at second and Mercer was throwing to first?

    It's a break up slide we see every day at second but for some reason because it's at home plate people hate it. It's also important to note it looks like he goes out of his way to not go in spikes up. I think that makes it look worse because he's fidgeting around more than usual but it would have been much easier for him to Spike Diaz in the calf/Achilles and that would have been worse.
