Why wuld he move to the side that the player was thowing from and then slide when he was already out? It looked like he was trying to break up the double play, and when you do that you do it knowing the risks.
You're supposed to slide regardless to get out of the way of the ball which is looked like he was trying to do since he was a ways off off the bag.
I know, but why slide to the side the SS is throwing from? Its not like he was going to break up the play, so why not just slide towards the inside of the bag and avoid any chance of injury.
And Posada said he isn't angry about the play and that its just something that happen in the game. Its in an artivle on ESPN.
