That Utley has been better this year doesn't change the fact that Miggy > Utley. Miggy was better in 07 and this year was an adjustment period to the AL. I'd like to see Utley put up his numbers in a more neutral park.

Interestingly, Utley hits 30 points higher on the road - and has 11 of his 28 HR on the road - so it isn't like his numbers are terribly inflated by the park - at least not as much as I would have expected.

Lol, I am familiar with the Cow. Seen his face for 5 years now and I usually just ignore, but this was just such a worthless brag thread where he wasn't even right that I felt like I had to say something.....

I have both, and as of late, MCab has been pulling his weight much more so than Utley.

This is a poorly timed thread.

I hate the "i told you so" threads and posts that have been popping up at the cafe recently.

The only reason Miggy was better in '07 was because Utley got hit and broke his hand/wrist. Normalize their at-bats (not even considering that Utley came back and wasn't the same, so he had three weeks or so of at-bats at a lesser rate) and Utley has a better line than Miggy for '07.

I'm still an Utley>Miggy believer, though they are very close, but I agree with the others that I don't see any reason for an "I told you so" thread to be posted on the cafe.
