Chase Utley had surgery this morning; could miss 5-6 weeks
UPDATE: Now it’s being widely reported that Utley actually already had his surgery this morning.
12:14 P.M.: I’ve only seen this from one source so far -- Peter Gammons -- but if he’s right, the news is very, very bad for the Phillies: Gammons says that Chase Utley is going to require surgery on his injured thumb. Gammons says he could miss five or six weeks.
Now would be a great time for the Phillies to make that trade for Dan Haren we just got done talking about, by the way. You know, to prevent the mass suicides and everything.
