This Jonathan Villar slide exemplifies the Astros season

In the bottom of the first inning of Tuesday night's Reds-Astros game, Jonathan Villar singled to lead off the frame. He tried to stretch it into a double. And…*this* happened, via Baseball Nation.

Yup. His face slammed into Brandon Phillips' butt as Phillips tagged him out.
