    Zobrist vs healthy Utley

    When Utley comes back healthy do you think he'll produce more than Zobrist will? I ask because my DL spot is taken already and Utley is just wasting space. The league is fairly shallow and I stream alot so I could use the spot for sure. I wonder if I should just cut ties with Utley because I already have Cano and Zobrist eligable at 2B anyway.

    • Utley still has no timetable for returning so I wouldn't be surprised if it wasn't until after the AllStar game. I don't think he'll be 100% when he gets back. I'm a huge Phillies fan and I'm definitely not a negative nay sayer) but I truly think Urley's best days are behind him. His listed injury is "chronic" knee problems which means this is going to be a problem for the rest of his career. I believe the Phillies are already looking ay Freddy Galvis to replace Utley at 2nd. Galves is already a better defensive player. If you ever saw him play you'd see that he is utterly amazing in the field. His only draw back is that he can't provide the offense that Utley can at this point in his career. But he is young and once he gets his timing down his offense will be pretty darn good too.

    • no, because he won't come back healthy. the wheels are gone.
      let him go.
