Here's the blurb, it looks like mauel is playing it conservative:
"Phillies manager Charlie Manuel seems to already be backing down from earlier claims that Chase Utley would be the everyday second baseman despite Placido Polanco's return.
''It's way too early for me to commit... . Polanco could be in there playing somewhere Opening Day. It's not like we've ruled that out,'' Manuel said. ''Utley is definitely going to play more than he did last year. But at the same time, it doesn't mean we can't get Polanco at-bats. Polanco can play a lot of different positions. It'll play itself out.'' We expect that this means Polanco will play second base against lefties and Utley will still get all of the starts against righties initially. That's the way it should be."
The F Word Out Loud! A poor 7 dollar investment is Utley before the season starts it appears.
Forget the man crush. I drop what I'm doing to watch Zack Greinke pitch.
