You took the words right out of my mouth. I wasn't in on the original debate, but it's kind of silly to call anything in a baseball season "settled" on Aug. 22. The last day of the regular season is Oct. 1. A lot can happen in 40 days. The 130-game schedule went out with the 1800s.
Utley may well end up with better overall stats, but if they're fairly close to what Wright puts up, I personally don't think that settles the debate over who's the better player. There are plenty of factors to consider, one of the biggest being the ballparks in which they hit. I've seen many a ball that looked like a routine fly ball remarkably end up in the seats in Citizens Bank, while Shea Stadium often eats even hard-hit fly balls for breakfast.
25 more runs and 19 points in average v. 3 sb and 10 rbi says Utley was the better play in 2006
"Was?" Wow, ya skipped all the way ahead to the end of the season? You should be making some big bucks on that time machine of yours there, bud.
