I'm curious what people think on this one. He slid into the bag, but it was a late slide. Nothing so egregious as Utley's projectile into Tejada. Utley's (wasn't even a slide, it was a takedown) should be an automatic suspension.

Batista's I think, while it was late, was a legal slide. Odor didn't get out of the way. I get that it was still late and kinda dirty, but I don't hate that slide the way I hated Utleys.

Thoughts?

Edit - having read the rules again and watched the slide again, his slide began pretty much on top of the base not before the base. It's pretty clearly an illegal slide with the new rules, even though he stayed in the base-paths. Not much to see here.
