Well after a long offseason due to the lockout, the NFL is back and I can’t be any happier. I went through each teams individual schedule after watching them play in the preseason(first half and game 2 and the first three quarters of the third game) and predicted where I believe they will finish during this season. This is my second time doing thishttp://brandononsports.WordPress.com/2010/09/09/2010-nfl-season-preview-and-predictions/ as you can see last season I picked the Packers to win it all and I was a bad play by Dawan Landry of the Ravens away from picking the exact Super Bowl teams. Well here goes, enjoy and feel free to comment here or hit me up on twitter https://twitter.com/#!/Bashir28 and I will gladly talk and debate with you. Thank you and enjoy the season.

Utley to Miss a Few Games

September 8th, 2011 by AmyMac | Comments Off on Utley to Miss a Few Games | Filed in Baseball, General, Phillies

By Amy McCormick

In the bottom of the sixth inning last night, Braves’ relief pitcher Eric O’Flaherty beamed Chase Utley in the back of the head.  What, no brawl? I’m not ranting about how classless and trashy Atlanta is?  Although I appreciate Ricky Bottalico’s musings on which Brave will pay for it when revenge strikes, I have to say that it didn’t look intentional at all. 

The bright side: 

1. Chase has great instincts and managed to whip his head around and have his helmet take the brunt of the pitch.  He seemed stunned by the incident, and I’m sure it hurt(s) like hell, but his batting helmet did its job last night by keeping Utley’s brains on the inside. Plus, no damage to that pretty face we love so much.

2. This incident could have have happened weeks from now.  The implications of that are obvious, I’d say.  Let’s hope that this bump in the road will leave Chase feeling rested and healthy for October.

3. Wilson Valdez is no Chase Utley, but he’s a pretty damned good sub.  Injuries within our lineup are never fun, but the Phils have a knack for holding down the fort well when someone is out.
