Chase Utley used as target practice

Utley actually hit this onePhillies All-Star 2nd baseman Chase Utley tied an MLB record yesterday afternoon at Shea when he was hit by a pitch three times. On top of that, he was also pegged with a Carlos Delgado throw while running from 1st to 2nd on a Ryan Howard grounder.

“I felt like maybe I had a magnet on me, none of them hurt too bad today.”

Although none hurt Chase, each HBP got progressively worse. The first simply brushed his jersey, the second barely touched him, and the third was a 90-mph Schoeneweis heater that he had no chance of dodging so he just clinched up and braced himself for impact.

#4 did some damage. Not to Chase — oh, he’s fine — but that last gaffe turned what should’ve been an inning-ending double play into a tie ballgame and the jump-off for yet another Phillie rally vs. the Metros.

Enjoy the Utley abuse and Met-choking hilarity in video form, after the “Read the full post…” thingy…

    I can’t wait to be in Philly for the Phils/Mets series in a week and a half. Utley is the fuckin’ man.

    eff you Mets. That is all.

  3. Phuck the Mets. Here’s hoping there’s a College (Underage Drinking) Night when the Mets come into town.

    He ain’t gonna back off the plate unless they get serious with some of these plunks.

    Look; the umpires just aren’t applying themselves. Tonight again they were too lazy to get into position and missed the correct call which should have been RUNNER HIT BY BATTED BALL IN FAIR TERRITORY…DEAD BALL>>>RUNNER IS OUT! The ball can’t be called foul when the umpire doesn’t have a view to the line of travel and the runner was clearly in fair territory. At the very least it is runner interference and again the runner is out because he was in fair territory. Had the runner been in foul territroy the call would have been correct; but he was definitely in fair territory.
    Here again; Phillies management did almost no arguing. What does that tell the players? If management doesn’t care about such por umpiring why should the players care about playing their best? Looks to me like the league wants the Mets to take the pennant so everybody else in the league needs to lay down and play dead so MLB can have their way and put lots of fans in the seats. The Phillies don’t have to win to put fans in the seats so it’s a done deal; right? Who cares what the truth is as long as MLB makes lots of money! I hope they choke on their bankroll!
