He's suppose to be a power middle infielder - which is rare.
Now he'll put up less RBI's but more Runs. SB will probably go down since Abreu bats behind him. Since Abreu is a lefty it makes more sense to keep Utley on 1st since then the 1st basenmen is covering the runner on 1st leaving the entire left side open for Abreu.
I think this is great for Abreu, and everyone else in the phillies lineup but hurts Utley.
Yeah, 3/4 with 3 runs is sure hurting him.
Sorry dude, this lineup makes sense all around.
