An Illegal Play Or Part Of The Game?

The New York Mets have lost their shortstop. The Dodgers' Chase Utley slid hard into Ruben Tejada, breaking the infielder's leg during Saturday's National League Division Series game. And the two teams seem to disagree on whether or not the play was dirty.
"He wasn't anywhere close to the bag," Mets third baseman David Wright said.
"I think every player in the world would have done the same thing that Chase did there," Dodgers first baseman Adrian Gonzalez said.
