Utley homered in his fifth straight game today. That's the second time this season he has homered in five straight games.

Chase Utley leads baseball in home runs with 21. :?:

What a season he is having.

What a player. He is something else, With one more pitcher the Phills would be tough to beat.

Well, Freddy Garcia should be available by the time August comes around.

The thing is, he collected ten million last year for what, two wins? :o:

I'll never forget how pissed people were at the time of that trade. When KW trades a pitcher, I don't think it's ever bitten him in the butt.

Yes, Chase Utley is the man. He has the best swing in the game, IMO.

He's by far my favorite player in the league. The guy is the total package...hits, HR's, steals. He does have a great swing. Every commentator for the opposing team just marvel at how well he hits when it looks like he's only taking a half swing.

Oh, and he's been my keeper on my fantasy team ever since he started fulltime in '05. :bandance:

Honestly, I like all the Phillies MVPs, including Howard, Rollins, and Utley. Too bad they killed us at Citizens Bank last year....:(:

It'd be interesting if he can stay on his tear for the next 4 months and be voted MVP. He'd be the 3d different Phillie player in a row to win it.

It's all because of the East coast bias!

I still don't know why Kenny didn't try getting him in that Iguchi trade. /sarc

He did and this was Pat Gillick's reaction!

Has that ever happened before (3 different players on the same team in a row)?

4 times, way more than I thought. The Yankees did it from 1941-43 (DiMaggio Gordon & Chandler) and 1961-63 (Maris Mantle & Howard). In the NL, Cincinnati did it from 1938-40 (Lombardi Walters & McCormick) and St. Louis Cardinals 1942-44 (Cooper Musial and Marian). I think that's it
