Any reason to be concerned about Utley?

Postby Doughhead » Wed Apr 12, 2006 10:17 pm

Off to a slow start--no big deal, but I'm just wondering if there's any reason for real concern. :-o

Not at this point. I wouldn't put it past possibility that last year was a fluke but I'm not even thinking about that right now.

Nah.

Look, it's 7 games in.... slumps in the beginning are just magnified.

There are no steroids in baseball. Just players Chuck Norris has breathed on.

I'm not worried yet. Too early for that. B-)

Lots of guys haven't done much yet. I wouldn't be too worried about any of them yet.

It's frustrating to watch/see, but assuming last year was NOT a fluke, then Utley will produce those numbers that we all know he's capable of, and everything should be all good.

I don't think he'll match last years rate stats, but since he'll play every day his total stats will be as good as last years. I wouldn't be worried about him either. He'll come around and still put up mid to high 20's in HR's and teens in steals which is still very valuable.
