Humpty Utley


Funny how history repeats itself.

For what it's worth, a doctor who hasn't actually seen Utley is optimistic.

mark reynolds for blanton and move polly to second until utleys return?

Reynolds defense makes me want to throw up. Seriously, he's as bad as it gets there.

Corey said...

moving polanco is a no-brainer, then fill in third with wiggy in the short term, a trade as mentioned earlier if utley is out long term or just re-sign rick schu.

McStudley said...

Is Tony Taylor still with the team? How about Todd Zeile? Charley Hayes? Don Money?

GM-Carson said...

Polly might be able to handle 2nd base on a short term basis, but I'd worry about him moving around the bag on double plays and getting injured.

Panic!!!!!

Let's settle down, eh? Easy on moving our geriatric but wizard-with-the-glove third basemen from his outpost until we have a viable replacement.

I'd personally love to see David Wright man the hot corner in red pinstripes, but I think it would take a three team deal to get the Mutts to trade him in the division.

Wait this isn't fantasy baseball?

GM-Carson said...

I'm going to go on record and say that David Wright's best years are behind him.

GM-Carson said...

How many runs a game do you think the Phils were average per game in April with no Utley and Howard?

I'm goign 2.3, and end the month with a losing record.

Bob D said...

Carson, winning record and 4-5 per game (ok maybe a bit high)

But the rotation has looked sharp so far this spring, with Worley really throwing great

GM-Carson said...

A starting lineup of Ruiz, Wigginton, Galvis, Polanco, Rollins, Mayberry, Victorino, and Pence is not scaring anybody.

We did pretty well last year with no offense. For April, we essentially replaced some HRs from Howard with some extra OBP from Pence, and replaced Pete Orr with . And fewer Wilson Valdez double play inning killers.
