Monday night’s NLCS showdown between the San Francisco Giants and St. Louis Cardinals will undoubtedly be remembered for Matt Holliday’s slide into Marco Scutaro. Regardless of whether you think the play was dirty or not, there is no denying that this particular sequence seemed to enthuse the Giants like nothing else in the series previously had. (Various players admitted this much after the fact.)
Scutaro stayed in the game and singled in two runs during the fourth inning, before ultimately exiting with a hip injury. X-Rays conducted after the game were negative. He will get an MRI on Tuesday.
No matter what happens as far as Scutaro’s health goes, the lingering question coming out of yesterday’s outing remains the same: was Holliday’s slide dirty? And if it was, does it warrant suspension?
What do you think: yay or nay on the suspension?
