Phil's Chase Utley Interview with Todd Zolecki March 28, 2011

Reading the transcript of the interview by MLB.com with Philadelphia Phillies Second Baseman Chase Utley, it does not sound particularly optimistic....

It seems like Chase will need a few more months to get back on the field - and that he could completely reinjure his knee condition the first time he steps on the field.

Perhaps more critically, it does not look like surgery would necessarily fix the problem - that is REALLY troubling.

I hate to see anyone's career at potential risk, and especially our beloved Chase - but I think that, to some extent, that is what we are potentially dealing with (or maybe a move to First Base or into the AL as a DH).  Only time will tell, and I am guessing a few months or more will pass before we (hopefully) see Chase back on the field. 

Godspeed, Chase - You ARE the man.
