Chase Utley struggling?

Postby shoelessjoetara » Mon Mar 17, 2008 9:02 pm

I know it is only ST. But he only has one HR and is only hitting .237. Any thoughts to why? I could understand if he was hitting say .750 in spring training against some young pitching, but thats not the case.

He did look terrible against the Rockies in the playoffs. I bet it is going Brad Lidge him.

but seriously - Spring Training people are working on things and trying new stuff - I wouldn't read into it much.

you had me at spring training.

However I will say I'm slightly worried about Utley because of the broken hand from last year, sometimes those things can cause problems even the next year. Emphasis on the slightly.
