And yeah, I hope they do. He'll take in the back as he usually does. Then again, you're talking about the Mets, so obviously their pitchers don't feel the need to stand up for their teammates.
I actually don't get why people are criticizing the Mets for taking umbrage with it... they clearly still care enough to take umbrage. If they were packing it in, we wouldn't hear a peep from 'em.

And, to be clear, I have no problem with Utley making that play... people just need to respect the fact that if you're on the other side of that play you have the responsibility to stand up for/protect your teammates.

You might see it tonight.
