ESPN.com has a story about Reds second basemen Brandon Phillips, and he says he's better than Chase Utley:
"Chase Utley is the best-hitting second baseman. Do I think I'm better than him all-around? Yes, I do. That's just my opinion. That's not me being cocky. It's about me being confident and believing in myself. You have to believe in yourself to play this game, because this game will kill you."
Yeah, he's right, Utley is a better hitter.
Utley's career stats: (with only 400 more ABs) .294 AVG, 172 HR, 622 RBI, 88 SB.
Phillips' career stats: .268, 107 HR, 416 RBI, 120 SB.
Phillips has more, speed? But then you factor in Utley's superior defense, attitude, and WFC ring, and it's case closed.
