answer: none, except this time Tejada was planted and injured.
Utley should have been called out for interference, the umpires blew it.
I still don't see the suspension, though. Utley didn't do anything dirty or outside the normal confines of major league
on the first slide Tejada was on the bag and Utley went to the bag which is his job; current one he thought he was out and went for the player not the bag; his slide starts right at Tejada because that was his intent;
