What other catchers are being kept same with 2b have to see how deep they would be..utley is def going to be a last min call..i am from Philly and don't like what im seeing and hearing especially after seeing the cortisone
If Utley looks like he may be out sig. time, I'm leaning toward Uggla - then going for Napoli/Soto in the 3rd round (of this draft). Looks like we'll hear more in 48hrs - I don't like what I'm hearing so far (at least Valdez looks good lol)

figured them 2 guys.. well you would still have a vmart and or mccann avail for next avail c if u do hold uggla..other than cano ur best chance for 30 +hr and 100+ rbi's are uggla and from what i see and hear chipper may be healthy and ready to go and that will only help..i say go with uggla..and yes gotta love valdez's gritty and do whatev asked style of play..he played the outfield yesterday for first time in career and gunned a guy out gone from 1st to 3rd haha.also like the way delwyn young and francisco are playing..if u get a chance go read my topic see if u could help me out and see what u think.
Thanks for the help on mine. As we're both realizing, Utley's injury is a huge question mark. That said, I'd stick with Utley unless we hear surgery is in his future. Otherwise, I think I'd rather have Uggla than V-Mart, catcher is pretty deep this year and you can probably grab V-Mart in the draft if you want him again. Uggla has a good chance to come close to last year's numbers, other than maybe the average (but even that wasn't been as inflated as people thought), and driving in Heyward, he could be even better.
