Default I would put the next pitch to Matt Holliday

Right into the middle of his back for that busch league slide into 2nd base on Scutaro to break up that double play. His slide started past the bag at 2nd....a huge no no in baseball ethics.

If he did that much, I'd say middle of the back isn't aggressive enough.

Very dirty slide, he almost blew out Scutaro's knee. There WILL be retribution, just a matter of time.

You're stooping to his level by going at his head. Good thing Scutaro was ok but it at least deserves one in the back.

That's something Larussa would have had players do. I thought Matheny ran a tighter ship. Holiday's a bum!

Behind or over would send the message.

Just saw it, I can't believe Scutaro's knee held out on that one. Not even close to a clean slide by Holiday.

And you know what would happen if the Giants do decide to beam Holliday? Posey would be getting the same thing

I'm predicting they will hit him...both benches will be warned and that would be it. Done.

WHEN Holiday gets hit, warnings will be issued. Hit Posey and get Carpenter out of the game, not the best idea.

They don't have to hit Posey this game.

Agreed, Carpenter doesn't have to be the one to hit him

I wouldn't say just Holliday felt it, I would say Carpenter and the whole Cardinals felt it. Not just Holliday

I'm saying that when a middle infielder knows a guy is trying to take him out, he jumps. Scutaro didn't jump. The slide was crap, but if Scutaro had jumped and hadn't been laying on the ground then no one would have thought his leg was broken, and this discussion wouldn't be happening. Just pointing out another aspect to the play that no one mentioned. Geez.

Why would he think he needed to slide when Holliday didn't even start the slide until AFTER he passed the bag?!

1) You don't hit Holliday in the postseason, the game is too important to risk baserunners over that slide, JMO.

2) No one in the Cardinals dugout is upset in the least with Holliday, he broke up a double play. It's the umpires job to call interference on that play if he feels the slide was out of line.

3) Watch some tape of older baseball and you'll see this isn't that big of a deal. All middle infielders know to get their legs out from under them after a throw.

This is a play that's been greatly blown out of proportion. The guy made a hard baseball play, no Giants players would care if the shoe was on the other foot.
