I think he was, or is going to be, cleared for full baseball activities this week.

EDIT: Looks like next week.

The Phils 2B line looks like this .246/.269/.415 .684 OPS

Utley's line last year was .259/.344/.425 .769 OPS. So there is some hope there. I haven't really been watching much so far, so I was surprised at how well the 1B position was doing at the plate. Howard will give them more power there, which is what I think they're missing as they can't drive people in that are getting on base.

That would be huge to get him back before June. If Mayberry keeps sucking they gotta call up D-Brown.

It's just that he is a big man coming back from a devastating injury. He probably wont regain his power until next season. Plus the fact that he is declining. Sure he will help, but I dont expect him to be the savior. As far as Utley goes, I like how how can get on base but he was pretty much a singles hitter last year.

Yea, and then you move Wigginton to 3rd and hope he keeps hitting to offset his D.

That's a good point.

The other hope they have though is Pence. He is way under his career numbers right now, so hopefully it doesn't have anything to do with his shoulder, and is just a slump. Also Rollins is killing them. He has been horrible, and I just can't see him being completely shot. It's more understandable with Polanco because of his injury history, but Rollins doesn't have an injury history of any significance.

I think they should/might look for a trade for a 3B.

I've been really bad at keeping up with the team so far.

Oh hey, bases loaded.

Edit: Yeah Hamels!

I thought Vanimal would be a decent pitcher but so far great he has been. I think the offense is due to them facing Volstad, who they usually hit around.

Freaking was supposed to go to this game, but work called, and I need the money

Dollar Dog Night too. What a drag.

Was a good game.

Nice to see the scoring in the beginning and at the end of games, it was their motif last year. I think once everyone levels out we'll see a pretty well rounded out O...just not what we're used to seeing.

Even after Utley and Howard come back.
