continues to prove he is THE MAN by returning from injuries well ahead of
schedule. Every Phillies fan hopes Utley goes on a tear as he did back
in 2007 when he returned from a broken hand. The time off should keep Utley

This is the second time Greg Dobbs has been designated for assignment this year. If he clears waivers and agrees to play for the Iron Pigs, he will likely be a September call-up when rosters expand. Every Phillies fan will miss his long swing, inability to hit a ball out of the infield, and failure to regain his 2008 form.
