the funny part is that he has more home runs than david wright and carlos beltran combined, which is more than enough for me. ;-D

The interesting question to me is what will he do the remainder of the season?

He is on pace for 130/57/141 (160 games). What are your projections?

Sounds a little low. He has gone deep in 5 straight, and apparently he's willing to run through signs to score runs, so I'll up it 150 runs, 85 homeruns, most of which will apparently be solo shots.

No 3 homerun games though.

well i dont think he'll hit 57 hr, but possibly 45. 130 rbi and 125 runs dont seem to be out of the equation either. i think a lot will depend on if howard goes into one of his hot streaks. if he's still struggling with a low .200 avg come august or september, utley will see fewer and fewer pitches. dont forget, utley will probably have about 20 sb's too.

Something like 40-45 HR/130 rbi/125-130 runs/16 sb

I'm leaning more towards 40 HR instead of 45

Baseball is a streaky game, it wasn't too long ago there was a post complaining about his 1HR in last 20 game slump or whatever it was.

Because he's swiped 6 thus far? He's never stolen 20 and if he steals more than 15 this year I'll be shocked.

I should also add that it's hard to steal bases while you're too busy hitting home runs. :-D

well he did steal 16 his first season as a starter and missed oh, about 100 abs, so you could assume that in 100-120 plate appearances, he would have snagged another 4 sb.

its out of the realm of possibility that utley will steal 10-13 more bases in the next 4 months?? not to mention he's 6 for 6 this year and is a career 85 % base stealer.

Oh I don't think he won't reach 20 not because he'll get caught too many times. I just don't expect him to be the guy running if he continues to swing a bat near as hot as he has so far this season, when there are legs like Victorino's and Rollins' who can run for you. I do think that Utley swiping 6 thus far may have to do with Rollins missing time in the early going.

I would love for him to steal 20, but I just don't see him surpassing 15.

if howard struggles and/or burrell gets dinged up, the middle of the phils lineup is not all that deep. sure werth or jenkins would slide up into the 5 hole or whatever, but if thats the case, i see utley doing a little more to create some more offense.
