Stupid Phils. Utley is the future. Polanco is a big-headed crap train.

Polanco's head is unbelievably big. I'm surprised they make batting helmets that large.

3 for 4 now with 3RBI. Just drove in the leading run.

Drop Hairston Jr for Utley?

I would take that chance....how many 2B hit 5th or 6th in a lineup like that?

Not many, but I'm afraid of what will happen when Polanco comes back. Plus, Thome is out of the lineup, so everyone moved up after Burrell. He won't normally hit 5th.

05.21 Phillies manager Larry Bowa said that he will likely option Chase Utley to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre once Placido Polanco is ready to come off the DL on Sunday, according to the AP. Bowa said that Utley wouldn't play enough to justify keeping him in the big leagues

I'm not sure. Surely Bowa must take into account Utley's performance the past few days (especially tonight when he had 3RBI and the go-ahead RBI in the clutch). It's not like Polanco is some all-star. Utley is the future. I can't understand the rationale.

I think I'm going to wait. I'll watch the press conference after the game and tell you what Bowa says about Chase.
