Kids these days don't have baseball smarts like they did in Terry Pendleton's day. On Saturday night, Braves third baseman Chris Johnson slowed himself down by sliding into first base on an inning-ending ground ball and first base coach Terry Pendleton ain't havin' none of that:

Damn kids.

UPDATE: Turns out Pendleton wasn't annoyed by the slide, it was something else:
