Unlike the Card's catcher, Hayes was standing on the plate.
I don't like running over catchers, but it IS standard procedure in MLB on close plays. Maybe he could have scored if he slid, but how well was he able to tell how close the play was barreling down the line? If it had been fractionally closer, his only chance would have been to knock it out of the catcher's grip. Something that, for better or worse, is pretty routine, is it not?
What book should be thrown at him then?

On a side note: why aren't there mandatory suspensions for players that run into a brawl from the bullpen? It's just a little bit ridiculous to see grown men doing that... can anybody help but laugh when they see it? Baseball clearly encourages the brawls and violence by virtue of not enforcing them, other than one or two nominal suspensions here and there if something extreme happens.
