to respectfully disagree, I say that's more because he never gets the chance to prove himself but he's always been ready to do so. The multipositions is what helps Uribe a lot though, I'll agree with that. If it helps Utley qualifies at 1b in Yahoo.
I agree...but the bottom line is that he hasn't proved himself, regardless of the reason. Like I said, I expect Utley to be good...but I am more confident in Uribe being good, as we've already seen it for most of a season.
So then it's just a matter of risk. Personally, I think Utley is well worth the risk, and I have him wrapped up for 3 years in my contract league.
