Yes, that is the "undisclosed location" that media members were led to for the Chase Utley presser. If you're wondering, that is just behind left field at Bright House Field. As for the photo, it was taken by our undercover photographer Kyle Scott, who has gotten over the flu and made the trip to Clearwater.
So what did Chase Utley say? Here are some of the finer moments from the not-so-entertaining left field press conference.
-He will miss the start of the season and said the process will be "slow."
-He has chondromalacia and met with Brett Fischer, a therapist in Arizona.
-The left knee is hurting more than right knee, which is opposite from what was going on last year.
-"I'm not looking at any surgeries."
-"Unless someone's tells me there's a surgical option that's 100 percent (recovery), I'm not into that."
-"It's not bad enough to have micro fracture surgery and it's not bad enough to end my career."
-"I truly believe I can get past this and contribute. But it's going to take a little time."
So, there you have it. Your second baseman is not hanging up the cleats, and will try to get back on the field soon. Chase may be optimistic, but I don't think the rest of us are.
