You probably remember this Chase Utley slide during the 2015 MLB postseason that cracked the fibula of former New York Mets infielder Ruben Tejada:
Utley was initially suspended for two games for the slide, reenacted here in the MLB Network studios:

They pretty much nailed it.
The suspension was eventually overturned by Major League Baseball the following spring after Utley appealed, and, as you can imagine, the Mets were less than thrilled with that development.
Fast forward to late May of 2016 when the Mets’ Noah Syndergaard was ejected after uncorking a 99 mph fastball that sailed nearly a foot behind Utley. A video accompanied by full audio of the incident emerged on Twitter tonight, and, I have to say, it’s awesome. Check it out after the jump:
