More proof that Philly fans are tremendous idiots. After what Abreu has done for you for the past 7 years, Utley is your favorite player?


Since when did your favorite player have to be the best one on the team? Be a little ridiculous if every fan was required to like the same guy because he's putting up the best stats.
...Boston papers now and then suffer a sharp flurry of arithmetic on this score; indeed, for Williams to have distributed all his hits so they did nobody else any good would constitute a feat of placement unparalleled in the annals of selfishness. -Updike

I think his favorite player could be Corey Lidle or Jon Lieber or even any non-Phillie for that matter. Save your elitest BS for the playground.

I'm with Pedantic. Utley will go at least 2 rounds too early for me and probably more. I think 2B will be a deeper position next year. In addition to the usual studs like Soriano, Kent, and Vidro you'll have some very solid choices in Marcus Giles, Brian Roberts, Polanco, Weeks, Cano, Cantu, Reyes, etc. I don't think 2B will be as scarce as it was this year, and thus no reason to pay big money for a guy like Utley.

Will Reyes and Cantu be eligible for 2b next year?

Jose Vidro is a "stud"? I don't think so. Utley is already the better option by a mile.

$260 cap, 12 teams, roto, How much do you think he goes for?
I have matching rights on him next year and I was wondering about how much I would have to spend to keep him.

;-D

And as for $$$ value, I wouldn't go much past $10-$12 if it was me. I'd rather spend the money on proven players, especially since I don't buy into the whole position scarcity argument too much.
