Watch Matt Holliday’s Bush League Slide Into Starlin Castro

Chicago Cubs News

The Chicago Cubs suck.

I thought I should get that out there before the Cardinal trolls make an appearance to decry my efforts to rip on Matt Holliday for his completely ridiculous, dangerous, and bush league slide in today’s game (pictured, right).

In the fifth inning, Holliday was busting it to second base to break up a double play (fine). But instead of sliding anywhere in the vicinity of second base, he slide late, high, and incredibly wide, directly into Starlin Castro. He didn’t take questions from reporters after the game.

Here’s the video (the play starts at the 20 second mark; sorry for Mac users, the embed may not work for you, so you’ll have to use this link to watch it):
