The LA Dodgers’ Chase Utley has drawn the ire of Mets fans following the second baseman’s illegal slide into Ruben Tejada during a National League Division Series playoff game. The slide, which lifelong Queens resident Frankie DiFrankio called “the dirtiest friggin’ play I ever seen in my life,” resulted in a fractured leg for the unlucky Tejada.
