Get lost in the beauty and mystery of Justin Turner's helmet-flying, red hair-flowing slide

2015 is truly the Year of the Slide. Francisco Lindor , Anthony Rizzo and Josh Donaldson have all done their part to make it so. But perhaps the greatest of all the slides (in the history of slides ever slid) happened in the Dodgers' 2-1 win over the Giants on Wednesday night.
