All-Star Play: The Mets lingered on Chase Utley longer than any other player in the Dodgers' introductions. pic.twitter.com/jO2vDVDwP4

Marcus Hayes once wrote that Chase Utley got a pass in Philly – a luxury not afforded to Jimmy Rollins and Ryan Howard – because he’s white. And as you might have guessed, Hayes is firmly anti-Utley after Chase’s devastating, series-changing slide against the Mets on Saturday.

UPDATE: In yet more spinelessness from Don Mattingly, Chase Utley is not in the starting lineup tonight.
Here’s what Kyle wrote yesterday:
Chase stole a win last night, and his manager, Don Mattingly, whose job Chase may very well have saved, was too much of a pussy to defend Utley after the game. “Charlie wouldn’t have done that to Chase,” my wife said to me this morning. Absolutely. Charlie would not have only defended Uts, but he would’ve swilled beer with him afterward and asked if he could hear the bone snapping. Chase would’ve nodded.
Uncle Cholly is back, and he’s here to defend one of his gamers. Charlie Manuel made an appearance on MLB Network radio to talk Chase Utley’s slide – because it’s the only topic of conversation now – and he said Chase slid hard, and late, but he didn’t have any ill will. It’s just how he plays.
Note: Charlie Manuel pronounces Washington as “Warshington” and that will be notable later in the post.
“That’s the way he plays. The first time I ever seen him was in Rochester playing triple-A baseball, that’s the first game I’ve even seen him and he hit a catcher, and the catcher was big, and he threw Chase up in the air about three or four feet over his back, and he landed and it hurt him. And I said to him after the game I said “way to go” and he looked at me and he said “I don’t know, Charlie.”
And in Utley’s career, Utley’s been hit a lot at second. He’s also a guy when he catches a ball, he stays there … he stays in too long sometimes. And I seen times like Lasting Milledge in Warshington one night spiked him real high, basically just jumped up on his knee, and he slid high and he cut him, and they were showing a replay of it and they had a recording in Warshington’s clubhouse at the time, and Milledge is sitting there bragging about doing it, saying he meant to do it …
And then in Cincinnati he got cut (physically), and he would never tell me. He wouldn’t even say something to a trainer unless another player, Jimmy Rollins or somebody, would say something to him. And that’s who he is …
I knew he did not slide to hurt Tejada, but he had the intention to take him out on the double play. He slid late, but he definitely did not mean to hurt him in no way.”
Audio here.” target=”_blank”>here.
Hard slides were kind of Milledge’s thing. The slide Cholly was likely remembering was more of a take-out than a cleating, and was likely this one here (via Gnats Nation, who stressed that Milledge got a standing ovation for it): Continue Reading
Some Flyers news: They lost 7-1 on Saturday, so they’re picking up right where they left off last year.
Meanwhile, Steve Mason, who was pulled after giving up four goals on eight shots during the loss, has left to team for a personal issue. Ron Hextall told the media:
“With regards to Mase, we just ask that you respect his privacy. It’s a sensitive issue and I think it’s a fair request.”
I’m sure that means Randy Miller will go snooping around like a creepster.
Tim Panaccio, who is truly terrible at his job, mostly just because he’s lazy, sent out this misleading Tweet to kick off a series of context-devoid missives:

Thanks, Tim. You suck
Presumably out as in out on the ice at practice, because he’s starting tonight. At said practice, the Flyers used Aramark employee Justin Musciano – who works at both Lincoln Financial Field and the Wells Fargo – to play goalie. He did the same in a pinch back in 2012. The Phantoms goalie – whomever that is – should be in town to back up Neuvieritrirititith tonight.
Finally, Ed Snider, who last year battled an unspecified cancer, won’t be able to attend the opener tonight because he just underwent medical therapy in California, but the Flyers said “he’s doing great.”
Chase Utley will play tonight – or at least he’ll be available and should be in the lineup to take Matt Harvey deep – and rather than speak to the gremlins trolling about his locker, he issued a terse statement, which tickles my heart like viewing pictures of small babies playing peek-a-boo with puppies. Chase, I see you:
“The Players Association and my agent are handling the appeals process. I have nothing more to say other than to reiterate that I feel terrible about Ruben’s injury. Now my teammates and I are focused on Game 3 and doing everything we can to win this series.”
Translation: Sorry about Ruben, but seriously, screw off. I’m going to slide like that again and, honestly, I’m kind of mad I didn’t break his other leg, too. Your good friend, Chase.
Just buy a shirt. All red in stock, blue in select sizes:
This is going to be great.
First, let’s let Bernard English – great name, by the way – say how he feels:
— NBC10 Philadelphia (@NBCPhiladelphia) October 12, 2015
Okay. I would like to congratulate Bernard on his emotion. 10/10, would watch a game with. Now since that’s out of the way, I want to break this down. Are the Eagles like Muhammad Ali? Well, no. First, Ali was never knocked out, and he was only knocked to the mat four times in his entire career. That’s insane. He was one of the greatest of all time. This Eagles team is far from Ali, and they’ve already been knocked out a few times this season. Still, I appreciate the emotion.
Now, the better part: Jiminy Cricket. Did Jiminy Cricket get back up after he was knocked down? Well, the only way to answer that question is with another question: What? In the Pinocchio movie, I don’t remember him being knocked out AT ALL. Am I wrong? Maybe, maybe not. But I dug a little deeper. In the original Pinocchio tale the 1940 film is based off of, Jiminy does get knocked down, kinda:
Jiminy is based off the Talking Cricket from the original Pinocchio book that Walt Disney’s film is based on. In the book, the cricket tries to lecture Pinocchio about his bad behavior, only to be flattened with a hammer for his efforts, and then come back as an equally preachy ghost. However in the film, the cricket is named Jiminy and instead of being a cameo character, he was made into a major character and joins Pinocchio on his journey to becoming a real boy.
There you have it. The Eagles got back up, just like Jiminy Cricket, who was murdered by a hammer and then came back as a kind of annoying ghost. That’s our Eagles. Once dead, but now back in ghost form to annoy people. I’m being sarcastic, but that might be the best comparison this team has.
Well done, Bernard, invoking pre-Disney Jiminy Cricket in your Eagles rallying cry.
