After the takeout slide that broke
According to Fox Sports' Ken Rosenthal, Utley reached out to the Mets' third baseman,
Utley told Rosenthal, "In no way shape or form was I trying to hurt Ruben. I slid in hard like I have for 12 years. I feel terrible about the outcome."
On Saturday, after the game, several Mets players said they felt aggrieved by the play. That included Wright.
"I have a problem with the play on a number of different levels," he said.
Wright called out Utley on a similar play in 2010, when, coincidentally, Utley also slid hard into Tejada at second base.
