We've spoken at length about the injury situations of both Ryan Howard and Chase Utley. The only person that seems to be using any reason and logic about the situation is J-Roll™, who made it clear he is not very optimistic about either this season. What about the skipper? Yesterday, Charlie Manuel seemed confident that Utley would be on the field soon. “I’d say it’s coming up pretty soon. It’s going to be a few days yet, but then he’ll start pushing his workouts up.”
Things change a lot around here. The only thing that changes more is Dwight Howard's decision on whether or not he wants to stay in Orlando.

“His problem is not going away. More than likely, it might never go away."
“I’m concerned with Chase. I’m always concerned with Chase. Once we get him to where we want him to be he can play. But I don’t know when that’s going to be. I want him to be a real good percentage. Will he ever be 100 percent? I don’t know.”
Just tell us what's up. This is getting a bit ridiculous already.
