    Factor in the fact that it was the first inning.

    I respectfully disagree. It is not as if Hamilton - a great athlete himself - was trying to beat out Willie Mays Hayes to reach home. They made a heck of a play to get him out. Not easy to execute and worth the gamble. If Hamilton knew he was going to get hurt, then don't go.

    No problem with the 3rd base coach saying, "No one's at home". That's not, "GO!". No problem with him going. No problem with the slide. Injuries happen.

    The analysts kill me. If he's safe and unhurt, it's a hustle play. He's out and gets hurt, and it's an idiotic play.
