Phillies Irish Jig

Here's an oldie, but a goodie from back in 2009. Happy St. Patty's Day.

*Adios D-Train, we hardly knew ye.

*Ryan Howard is still hurt.

*Chase Utley still hasn't appeared in a Grapefruit League game.

*There is no pot of gold at the end of a rainbow. Lying little red-headed midgets!

Utley not appearing is not good sign so far. At first I just shrugged it off as no big deal, but this could be a sign that things are not right. Howard, well we all knew he was injured but his set back could cost him a whole month. They say May, but June is prolly realistic with the All Star break likely the later end of return.

However, with Mayberry, Nix, Wiggington, Thome all in the fold I don't think there will be much of a drop off with them missing.

1 more week and we should have a better idea on Utley.

When I start to read things like "career potentially over" it scares me. I was under the impression they weer leaving him out to reduce wear and tear on a chronic knee condition. This is worrisome. I don't share Bob's positive outlook.

It is not Ryan Howard's fault that two years ago he hurt his foot/leg that then leg to blowing out his Achillies tendon, anymore than it is Chase Utley's fault that is knees may be finished.

Both gave us 6 golden years.

10s of Millions will be lost.
