Chase Utley Had to Dye His Hair Because Corey Seager Hit Two HRs Against the Phillies

Vain isn’t a word you’d use to describe Chase Utley. The Man started rocking a soul patch years after it was cool (if it was ever cool) and then kept it for 10 more years. So when his hair was getting increasingly grey, he just became a silver fox. I mean, he’s still Chase Utley, so who cares?

But Corey Seager had different ideas. The Dodger rookie, who has become tight with Utley, wanted Chase to try to get some of his youthful beauty back. So they made a bet:

“He’s been telling me for the past few months how I should dye my hair,’’ Utley said. “I told him, ‘Hey, it is what it is. It’s just not something I’m interested in doing.’ He said, ‘OK, how about this? If I hit two home runs tonight, you have to dye your hair.’

“I said, ‘Sure, Corey. Done. Deal.'”

Said Seager: “I wanted him to go slick black, dark black, greased up, like the hair he used to have. So finally, the day before the game (Aug. 8 against the Philadelphia Phillies), I said, ‘Dude, what is it going to take?’ I’m trying to swing over a guy who has done everything in baseball anyone’s ever wanted. He just kept saying, ‘It’s not going to happen. It’s not going to happen.’ Finally, 10 minutes before game time, I came up with the bet.’’

First inning, Seager homers off Phillies starter Zach Eflin deep over the center-field fence.

Utley doesn’t really care about his looks – at least that’s what he wants you to believe – but then he realized that he really didn’t want to dye his hair.

As Chase tells it, he went to Seager and said “How about if I hit any home run, it cancels out one your home runs?” Seager agreed. Utley homered in the third. Seager homered again in the seventh. With the new provision, Utley probably could have backed out of the bet, but he stuck with it:

“I couldn’t believe how happy he was,’’ Utley said. “I was trying to figure out where we stood in the bet, but I honored it, because I thought it was the right thing to do.’’

And one week later, there was Utley, with his hair dyed brown, and Seager taking pictures on his phone.

“I was so geeked up that day,’’ Seager said. “That was the most important game of my life. Really. Up to this point, it was the biggest.’’

Says third baseman Justin Turner, “It was the happiest I’ve ever seen Corey.”

No kidding, look how psyched he was:

His hair wasn’t dyed when he came back to Philly, because he loves us and refuses to hide his true self. But he did it all for his lil’ buddy Corey Seager. Chase Utley is for the children.

    1. Your disappointmental doesn’t even come close to mine. I went from telling everyone to watch the show to avoidING it bc of the underwhelming finale

        1. I thought we were the bestest of buds all this time. That “midget” is the Dink in the form of Tyrion from Game of Thrones mind you

          1. Game of Thrones mind you? Are you joking? That is your life? I rail on you because of your liberal pussy opinions, radio listener crap, etc. You have to reevaluate your life. This board isn’t it.

          1. Here’s what I think, Liberal. I think you are probably 40+% of the comment on this site. You probably impersonate all the “Bobs” and are an unemployed guy.

    2. No it was extremely well done. It was the best show I have season since season 1 of True Detective. It was so good thematically and visually. The plot was thin, but it doesn’t matter it was fueled by great dialogue and characters.

      Everyone ended up in their own proverbial prison except for the cat. He was the only one who truly achieved freedom. People waiting for a twist or something cheesy are the people who didn’t understand what the shows was striving to achieve.

  1. Jesus Christ, why don’t you queens just suck thus .250 hitter’s c ock already. Fuckung embarrassing.

    1. But blazed up? That’s an everyday ordeal for me. For the record I put it in the air before I get behind the wheel, never while driving

        1. I like how you went to “you are” instead of getting hammered for not knowing how to use you’re vs your.

          Good move.

  2. Fuck you and your h omo picture. Game of thrones is for Mongoloids

  3. I need to know that I that I have your unequivocal 100% support, or I’m afraid idk what I’m going to do. C’mon this site represents the city of brotherly love.
    Brotherly love Bob!
    Fyi, the only time I post, you see that “midget” avatar as u so kindly put it. Here’s a fun thought, u said I make up 40% of the comments here, but how about this, it’s just u and I! Like I said tho, the only time I post u see that avatar, so you’re providing the rest of the comments bob, yes that means with alternate handles.
