The MLBPA has grown in power by leaps and bounds since those days.

Very true and in this regard (i.e. fundamentals) baseball has suffered for it.

How so? Serious question - i'm not saying you're wrong, I just haven't heard that level of detail of what happened.

All I know is that he was injured sliding feet first into a base. Was there something about the way he slid that was unsound and led to the injury?

If I remember correctly he had his hands low to the ground or under his body.

I think players spend less time practicing baseball skills - particularly fielding drills - and more time focusing on their nutrition, fitness, and bodybuilding routines.

Iím not passing judgment. I just think thatís how the game has evolved.

When I look at the replay it looks to me as if his left hand collides with the fielder's glove on the attempted tag. The ball goes flying out of the glove and the Red's player pulls his glove off and shakes his hand. Renteria is quoted as saying he thought Robert slid into a spike but I think it was just a freak coincidence of his hand being in the wrong place as the fielder was bringing the glove down for the tag and contact was made.

Fundamentals:
Last night, with Tex runners on 1st and 3rd a deep fly ball was hit to Delmonico. Davidson was looking at Delmonico and pointing at 2nd base for the throw . Delmonico throws toward home and runner at 1st advanced to 2nd. Stone mentioned what a bad decision Delmonico made.
Some guys on this team are brain dead.

That's crap you pretty much learn in little league.

I have no idea how guys in MLB can't judge whether or not they can throw someone out at home.

He barely got the ball to the infield.

Most guys on this team are "baseball-stupid." (And I don't see the manager or coaches doing anything about it apparently...)

This very fact makes this team, which we all knew was going to lose its fair share of games, unwatchable.
