utley has 34 runs scored and 33 rbi in 60 games. 34+33-8(# of HR so you don't count the same runs and rbis)=59. By those numbers he has in some way accounted for about a run per game on average. Obviously the people filling in at second for chase helped offensively as well but thats pretty good. there were other factors involved other than just chase coming back but you can see why they are better offensively with him in the lineup. just out of curiosity what did they average before may 23rd?
