Exactly. That's Utley's job, everyone doesn't need their own mentor. He's perfectly capable of taking care of the lineup. Utley mentors Brown despite him being an outfielder. Young and Ruiz provide nothing to this team anymore. They are free agents, so we get two months of their mediocre baseball and then they are gone and we get nothing.
Get what you can out of them now. Maybe you can get something good. I understand keeping Utley but there is no reason to keep these guys.
