There's nothing dirty about that play. He didn't have his cleats up in the air. He didn't try to injure Molina. He simply tried to slide right into Molina's legs. That's how it's actually taught.
Now, granted, he would have been better off trying to slide away from Molina in this case, but it was not a dirty play.
