MLB players react to Chase Utley's takeout slide of Ruben Tejada

Ruben Tejada broke his leg after a takeout slide by Chase Utley in Game 2 of the Dodgers-Mets National League Division Series, on national television for everybody to see, and the baseball world reacted.

Several baseball players held the opinion that Utley's slide was a good, old-fashioned, hard-nosed baseball play, or at least vouched for Utley's character.

Others saw it differently.
