Chase Utley met with the assembled media in Clearwater. I don’t put a whole lot of stock into much of anything Chase says… but what he said today was mostly encouraging.
“I feel pretty damn good right now.”
“I sent Charlie a text message [in Decemeber] and I told him if he behaves himself, maybe Santa will bring him a healthy second baseman… wanted to let him know things are going well on my end and wanted to wish him a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.”
“Changing position at 34 is probably not the ideal thing to do. So I’m going to stay at second and go from there.”
“Ben Revere is pretty exciting to watch. I just watched him track down flies in center field and it’s pretty impressive.”
When told about Roy Halladay saying Chase encouraged him to drill some batters: “Awesome!”
