who's*

anyway...this is a tough one. There have been a lot of injuries over the years for Utley, and I'm not sure how much he has left in the tank. As a Phillies fan, I hope he can go another 2-3 years, but my gut tells me that he has maybe 1-2 years left of semi-elite fantasy play.

Choo on the other hand does pretty much everything Utley does, just at an abundant position. If Choo played 2B, Choo would be the second 2B on everyone's list. He has similar power and speed numbers to Utley, and usually hits better. Choo is a bit younger, but on a worse team.

This is a ridiculously strange dilemma. I guess I'd go with Utley only because of the position scarcity, but I still don't know. I'm not 100% on that keeper. That's a tough one. :-S

I'm taking utley without question here. Choo is a solid 20-20 guy, but he really doesnt have a higher ceiling for much more than that. I will take a guy with a 30/20 ceiling at 2B anyday, you should hav provided more info if you want informative responses, but I dont care what you league is (keeper or non-keeper), I'll take utley.

help with mine?

It's close. I'd take Utley, even though he comes with some injury risk (see patellar tendinitis).

....a guy that has been a consistent 5-category player ever since he came to the majors, does not have much ceiling.
Not to mention excellent slugging and obp.
People get too hung up on names and star power.
If Choo were playing for the Yankees, this would all be moot!
