    @ToddZolecki: Sources: Phillies, Dodgers moving closer to deal for Chase Utley. Nothing finalized. http://t.co/SbygZUsEEd

    Nothing finalized. I love Utley, but also find this very weird. He's an upgrade over Guerrero, but I do fear this means Howie is more injured then we think, which would really suck :(

    Have to wait for more details, but if he's here over Guerrero or Callaspo it's an exciting upgrade.

    • CSNPhilly.com reports that if a trade does not happen Wednesday, Utley will remain with the Phillies the remainder of the season.

    Still think Enrique gets plenty of at bats if Chase were to come, considering Chase is old and wouldn't play every day and Joc hasn't been hitting

    what worries me is if the dodgers are looking to add buttfuckley, howie may be more seriously injured than we've been led to believe

    edit:
    just saw you post @doyerfan as i was merging from the rumors thread

    Howie must be down for a while.

    I'm going to laugh at you all when Utley hits a go ahead HR in the playoffs off the bench







    Then cry when the bullpen gives up 6 runs the next inning.

    A .484/.485/.742 line for Utley thus far in August. You do the math on that OPS. I'll take a hot Utley @ 2B while HK is down for the next 2 weeks ( which is now reportedly how long we have to go without HK ). We need to win by any means necessary and August 28th-Sept 13th is wild. CHI/SF in 6 consecutive games and then more road games.

    Kike can fill one of the OF spots 4-5 games a week. He can give Joc some rest and a chance to recharge as well as take those ABs against tough lefties...if all this comes to pass, that is. Still just " rumors " at this point.

    It's as simple as this for me: Utley is an upgrade over Guerrero or Callaspo IMO. If he's replacing their spot, it's great. The Dodgers also might possibly not have a 2nd dude on the roster who can handle 2B, cause Turner/Callaspo might not be capable there.

    If Utley had anything left in him he'd be with STL by now. Ala Berkman, Beltran, etc

    No, but hopefully he can be clutch in the 8th or 9th and help regain the lead for us. Lol
