The text, if you can’t read it through the tears:

Thank you Philadelphia for taking me under your wing 12 years ago. It has been an honor and a dream come true to play for a city with so much passion. I feel extremely lucky to have played for an organization with so many incredible people.

Thank you David Montgomery for having the gift to make everyone around you feel important. I am proud to have been a part of your vision for the organization. I’ve played for several impactful coaches over the years, but Charlie Manuel stands alone for what he has meant to me. His patience, encouragement and faith in his team created a sense of confidence that his players will never forget. Most importantly, I would like to say thank you to my teammates, old and new. I will forever cherish the times that we had. Pat, Row, j-dub, Jroll, Howy, Vic, Chooch, Cole to name a few– Thank you for your countless hours of preparation and determination. I am honored to have shared the field with you.

Jen and I have worked with the Pennsylvania SPCA for over 10 years and we will continue to support their work for years to come. Thank you to everyone who has joined us to positively change the lives of the abused and neglected animals of Philadelphia.

Citizens Bank Park is like no other stadium. The support, encouragement and energy that all of you brought on a daily basis was empowering. We have had quite a ride together and I will never forget 2008. WFC forever!

Thanks again Philly, I will miss you.

Chase Utley

I thought this was supposed to get easier as time went on? I’m sobbing. Oh shit! There’s stickers:

    enough already

    1. thanks josh innes, we know you hate utley and talking about sports. maybe time to find a new career?

  2. O.K. the Inky and Daily News. What about the 90% of Phillies fans that haven’t read either of those rags in years?

  3. “WFC Forever”, uh oh, Grandpa Missanelli is going to get upset with Chase all over again.

  4. See, that’s why we held on to these guys two years too long.

    Excuse me while I go draft an extension for Chooch.

  5. Anybody find it strange that they both took vacation at the exact same time. Doesn’t help with the rumors that they are lovers.

    1. Who cares you moron , this is Utley’s moment, and instead of you worrying about who’s screwing who, you should focus on getting a date with an actual woman you loser.

      1. Bob, if we want news about Chase Utley, we will go to the Daily News or Inquirer or CSN. We come here for gossip. it may be droll and classless, but so be it.

  6. Come on, Kyle.

    You know better.

    Chase did not write this. It was a script writer in the front office that did.

    It is called public relations.

    Ivy Lee is laughing in his grave.

    1. Better yet, we should fly a banner. I know a guy that does that, though he hasn’t answered his phone recently.

  7. Why didn’t the Philadelphia Daily News take out a one page thank you ad when I “retired”?
