On Friday night the Mets were downed by the Phillies to lose their 6th game in a row last night.  During the 5th inning of a then 1-run game Philadelphia's second basemen Chase Utley made an aggressive slide into second base in an attempt to break up a would be double play.  At the time I don't think I got an appreciation for how hard and high Utley went in, but in looking at the replay and putting together the stills I feel it was excessive.
