seems lik the ideal candidate to be called up if Thome misses any time. Has anyone seen him play? Heard he can rake but he also K's a ton.

There were some media stuff earlier in the year b/c Howard wanted to be traded and Wade basically said he wants to get rid of him as well. Think they'll leave him down in AAA due to this or?

It's hard to say if they will call him up or not. I don't know how he is defensively...Utley can play first (and is 1b eligible in yahoo!) so I would think he would get some starts at 1b.

I believe Utley played some 1st base last year. The Phillies could move him to first short term.

3rd that opinion. I think Utley will get the nod before a different minor steps in. But with Palanco getting shopped by the Cubs, anything is still possible. Also, Utley looks like he’s showing an uptide to his crap start. He is definitely a great player to have regardless who will see more playing time with either the Thome issue or Polanco’s possible departure.

Again, anything is possible, especially when you throw Trusty Dusty into the mix. :-o
