We thought it would be worth noting that Chase Utley enters play tonight with 9 HR, and 6 long ones in the past 5 games including the last five straight.
He’s in Colorado tonight, so we’ll keep you posted should he go boom. It’s being noted that people (presumably just Philly fans & publications) are calling this guy the NL MVP.
Myself? I look at Utley and see a player beginning to peak, but not a guy who can make a run at 50 home runs or even 40. That’s because he’s going to be stuck on 38 this season even with his hot start.
