got to get into the swing of things

The Phils will lose some defense with Ledee or Michael in CF, and Marlon has done well in the field, yet he has to get his swing in the groove..so now is as good a time as any. I agree with management to get him away for a while, find his stroke and where did that power go? Also, anytime the Phils lead after 7, bring in Glanville. I'd give it a try a couple weeks.

Bringing Glanville in for defense in the late innings is always a super idea. he glides well out there. . . I cannot believe the impact that Thome is having on this club. I honestly believe signing Thome was one of the best front office moves in Philadelphpia sports history. Great guy that puts up big numbers and who is team-orientated. He seems a good fit for the Fightin's. . . Is it too early to label Chase Utley a "streaky player"?

Chase has been an excellent hitter in the minors, which usually translates well into the majors. He's going to be the regular second baseman next season, because they won't keep Polanco and his $4M a year contract. The only reason he's at AAA is so he can play in the field every day. It's too early to label him a streaky hitter, however, I hear he has a few holes in his swing.
