What Up, Uts?

.269 average? Lowest OPS since 2004? What is up with ol' Chase?

I think I may have figured it out. I took a look at some Utley photos from recent Phillies games. I noticed something different. Take a look.




Goatee? Mullet? Dropping batting average? Holy crap, it's Mickey Morandini!

Apparently Utley's thumb has not healed so the Phillies have hired Mickey to "stand in" for Chase until he's ready to play. Well, that solves that mystery.

Wouldn't have predicted that sweep of the Padres. Phils in control of their playoff destiny.

By the way, good job picking on the white guys. Utley needed to be blasted, but I didn't have it in me.

Anyone can clearly see from the way he swings that he wasn't, and still isn't ready to play.

Utley was in a slump a good 6 weeks before he was injured. He's just having a bad season.

He's having a very bad season. J-Roll, Victorino, Howard, Utley, and Ibanez all having down years. The only guys doing well are Polanco, Chooch, and Werth. But Werth can't hit with men on base. All that leads to a very inconsistent offense that struggles to score runs for stretches of time.

The major breakthrough for these machines occurred in the late 1930s, when the standardized pallet was developed. You will also have to arrange for a storage space for the vehicle. If you have found a good online forklift parts dealer, he can deal directly with the company's parts staff and get the answers he needs. The fork lift truck will of course last longer than the fork lift parts.
