Have you heard the breaking news on Chase Utley? No, he didn't get his leg amputated, rather he's finally starting to run. This doesn't mean you'll see him in the Phils lineup next week, but it does mean he's progressing. Hopefully his knee responds well to the stress of running and he's able to begin a rehab assignment in a week or two. Wilson Valdez has done an admirable job filling in, but Utley adds a entirely different dimension to the lineup.
Did you watch the game last night? I hope so, because Cliff Lee pitched exactly like what the Phils paid for. He dominated for all 9 innings and was masterful. A 1-2 punch of he and Halladay is a beautiful thing. Then to think we have Oswalt and Hamels in reserve. Awesome!
Philadelphia Phillies in 2011- 4 series, 4 series won, 9-3 record, looking great. The offense has slowed of late, but the W's keep coming. Keep on rollin' fellas, all the way to and out of Miami.
