Matt Holliday apologizes for his hard slide... sort of

You've probably seen several angles on Matt Holliday's hard slide into Marco Scutaro during Monday night's Game 2 of the NLCS, but it's worth another look:

And, the entire play via MLB.com video:

Holliday, for his part, said he hopes Scutaro is OK:

Holliday's quote in text form:

"In hindsight, I wish I would have started the slide a little earlier, but it happened so fast," Holliday said. "I hope he's OK, he's a good guy. I was more interested in breaking up the double play."

Is Matt Holliday truly sorry? This isn't the first time he's made a slide that appeared to be a little bit out of the bounds of "breaking up a double play". Check out this slide he made in July 2011:

Cardinals fans will say this play was just good, tough baseball. Giants fans will worry about their player being hurt. How do Scutaro's teammates feel about Holliday?

"We felt for him," center fielder Angel Pagan said. "We felt a little bit of anger."

And now these teams have a history. They'll have a day off before resuming the series, now tied 1-1, in St. Louis Wednesday.
