Face plant

In case any of you missed the last play of the second game last night, here's a video from MLB.com of the Escobar-Church collision at second base. Here's the accompanying news story.

Let's hope Yunie doesn't miss too much time. Some baseball forum posters are calling Ryan Church's slide (with the intent to bust up the double play) "dirty", but that's just part of the game. It's not like we haven't seen Matty pull that a time or two. ;)

It was a good, clean play. They both knew what they were getting into.

I agree that Church meant nothing by it and was just trying to break up the double play.

My only opinion is that he's got to be one of the dumbest f***s in the majors to stay as upright as he did. #1: Yunel could have turned his face inside out with the relay over to first. #2: Well...the second worst case scenario happened; he caught a flying knee lift in the head.

I know he was just playing hard, but when you put yourself in that position, you're just asking to get hurt.
