Joe Morgan on Chase Utley Last Night

Morgan was doing the color commentary on ESPN's "Sunday Night Baseball." At one point in the midddle of the game, he said, "he will be the best hitting second baseman in history when he's done."

Wow! That's some praise from one of the best-hitting second basemen in history. Does that mean that Utley will be better than Rogers Hornsby, Charlie Gehringer, Jackie Robinson, Joe Morgan, Ryne Sandberg and Jeff Kent?

One thing is clear -- Utley is very, very good.

Now, for the Phillies, if Jimmy Rollins and Shane Victorino can get healthy and if Ryan Howard can start hitting. . .

Doesn't Rod Carew come to mind as well?

Wow indeed. I am an Utley fan, but it might be a bit early for Joe to make that statement. Joe is not that prone to wild rhetoric, though. Maybe after Chase wins his first MVP award, we can start making room in the HOF.

I just want the Phils to finish April above .500!
