Chase Utley appeared in 115 games in 2010, then 103 last year, and he'll see that number shrink yet again this year as he's appeared in 74 games for the Phillies. I got news for you folks. When the guys body allows, he is still a mighty productive hitter. If we double his work this season to 148 games played, how many of you are aware than we would be talking about a guy damn near going 20/20? Utley has 11 homers and nine steals on the season. Are you aware that he'd also be an 80-80 guy since he has 41 RBIs and 42 runs scored? What about the fact that he's hitting .293 with 15 RBIs, 14 runs scored an a .417 OBP in the month of September? You can't draft Utley next year expecting a 20-80-80-20 season of course, but the fact of the matter is that he's certainly done enough to engender at least a modicum of excitement heading into 2013.
