Congratulations Phillies Fans, You've Survived the Worst of It

I was thinking about this after word broke that Cliff Lee was done for 2015, and probably retiring- Cliff Lee and Chase Utley are both likely to get their buyout checks this Winter, and not be a part of the 2016 Phillies. Next season is the end of the infamous...

Chase Utley closing in on a return for the Philadelphia Phillies, as another team eyes him.

Chase Utley hasn’t had one his best years in 2015 for the Philadelphia Phillies. In fact he has lost his starting spot in the eyes of the team’s general manager, but that hasn’t stopped him from getting healthy and trying to return to baseball before the season ends. Utley made an appearance in the locker room this past weekend and then quietly disappeared again. Utley went...

Parting ways with Kyle Kendrick was right decision for Phillies

View image | While the Phillies have often been haunted with making poor decisions in the past, such as trading away Cliff Lee in the 2009 offseason, or re-signing aged veterans such as second baseman Chase Utley and catcher Carlos Ruiz, it is safe to assume that they made...

Storyline: Utley’s New Position, Phillies?

After the trade deadline, the possibility exists for Chase Utley to flourish daily on the Philadelphia Phillies, while his replacement at second does also. But although Cesar Hernandez won’t hit .300 for the campaign, he has earned playing time with his bat, glove and legs. That stated, the two starters should frequently be in the lineup together after July 31. What Happens...

Could Chase Utley become a Yankee?

Chase Utley is most likely not going to be a Phillie next season. He could get moved as early as the trade deadline this season, or get moved sometime during the offseason. Utley, who has spent all 13 years of his career in Philadelphia, is struggling this year, hitting a measly .179 with 4 home runs and 25 RBI’s. With Utley up for trade, the best spot he could land would be in...

Phillies GM: Chase Utley not a starter at 2B when he returns

Chase Utley is on the DL right now for the Philadelphia Phillies, don’t expect to see him immediately slide back into their lineup with the familiar “4” next to his name. Before Tuesday’s game with the Dodgers in Los Angeles, GM Ruben Amaro was asked about Utley’s role when he returned. Amaro didn’t commit to Utley at second base, and instead backed the relatively...

Philadelphia Phillies put struggling Chase Utley on 15-day disabled list

The Philadelphia Phillies have placed second baseman Chase Utley, who is having the worst season of his career, on the 15-day disabled list with inflammation in his right ankle. The 36-year-old Utley is among the most surprising stories thus far in the 2015 season. While he is not the hitter he once was, no one expected the six-time All-Star to be hitting a measly .179, which ranks...

Playing Chase Utley everyday can be costly for the Philadelphia Phillies

There is no Red October in Philadelphia this season, there isn’t really going to be any drama for Philadelphia Phillies fans to watch this season except to see if the team finishes dead last. But behind the scenes the Phillies could be making a real expensive mistake with Chase Utley. Utley is a shell of his former self this season, hitting below the Mendoza line at .182/.258/...
