Chase Utely, you are the man! Best 2nd baseman in the game without a doubt. Season stats- 42 runs, 71 hits, 25 doubles, 11 homeruns, 47 rbi, .311 average, and a .969 OPS. Fun projection- on pace for 70 doubles (I'd love to see that).
Lefty reliever Pedro Feliciano was nearly perfect facing left-handed batters this season before last night, entering the game only surrendering 2 hits in 23 at bats. Chase Utley greeted him with a homerun and Ryan Howard followed that up with nearly a homerun of his own. The Phils managed to double the production of lefties against Feliciano in only 2 at bats. It's nice when the other team is the one getting crapped on.
With last night's win, the Phillies sit smack-dab on .500 yet again. Don't get me wrong, I'd rather be at .500 than moping about a losing record, but winning baseball is so much more pleasant. Tough task for the Phils today against the Mets with Orlando Hernandez on the mound facing one of our overpaid inconsistency- Adamn Eaton. Hey, who knows, maybe Eaton pitches a gem...lets go Phils!
