Am I wrong about that? I could've sworn that Bell was going on the DL, but I cannot find anything to support that any more.
Someone straighten me out, please.
Yes, you are wrong. In fact I just saw Bell play yesterday on TV, he seemed fine. Utley is the starter, and I think he will remain the starter. Polanco will probably take some ABs away from Chase, but Utley will still get the majority of the ABs at 2B.
As far as god is concerned, if he starts using an energy consuming kind of blower or electric blanket, I’ll kick his ass too.
