Utley to miss time after being hit in head

Chase UtleyBy C. Trent Rosecrans

Phillies second baseman Chase Utley did not join the team's flight to Milwaukee and will miss at least Thursday's game against the Brewers, if not more, after being hit in the head by a Eric O'Flaherty pitch in the sixth inning of the Phillies' 3-2 victory over the Braves at Citizens Bank Park.

Utley stayed in the game, but was pulled after he complained of a headache in the seventh inning. Utley was expected to see the team's doctor and a concussion specialist after the game. General manager Ruben Amaro Jr. told reporters Utley would undergo concussion exams on Friday.

"As I told Chase, we're not going to mess with the heart and we're not going to mess with the head," Amaro said (CSNPhilly.com). "When you get a 90-mph fastball off the melon, you have to be cautious about it. he's going to be out at least a couple of days."

As a result, Amaro said the team would activate shortstop Jimmy Rollins from the disabled list "for emergency purposes." Rollins has been on the DL since Aug. 21 with a strained groin.

Okay, I'm off again.  May or may not be back, since they've pulled this article off the main menu and replaced it with a new one.  Anyway, I'm off to Lancaster for a few days, to deal with some matters in settling my mother's estate.  Ta-ta, YankeesWin.
And, if you get a chance, learn how to keep score.  You won't get tripped up on your facts so often.

Hope this doesn't go through twice.  It didn't seem to register the first time.

And I quote,"unlike you I don't have to resort to AD HOMINEM ATTACKS. . .You're making yourself look more and more foolish and arrogant--certainly not a good advertisement for the city whose team you root for. So calling me FOOLISH AND ARROGENT isn't an attack.


Well, of course it was an attack!  But it wasn't an ad hominem attack, which my dictionary defines as "marked by an attack on an opponent's character rather than by answer to his contentions (e.g., an ad hominem plea that his accuser had been in jail)". I accused you of looking foolish and arrogant based on what you'd written. By contrast, your out-of-left-field references to the supposed deficiencies of the City of Philadelphia, my supposed gender, my supposed living arrangements, etc., etc. (even bringing my mother into it, who died earlier this year), are practically the definition of ad hominem. All I did was say that your repeated resort to such irrelevancies showed that you'd run out of real arguments.

You indignantly quote me as saying, "'nite nite' to you, YankeesWin."  Uh, didn't you even notice that I was just quoting your own phrase from a post you'd just made, when you were promising to leave?

I didn't really describe you as desperate. I said your repeated attacks on the Phillies sounded desperate, or envious of the Phillies' record this year. And I think that was fair comment on what you'd written.

Also, I don't think I said you were drunk (though it wouldn't surprise me if you were); all I said was that I hope hoped you'd wake up sober (i.e., whether you were drunk or not). If even that was an ad hominem attack, I apologize for it.

Anything else, YankeesLose?  Any thing else baseball-related, that is?

Dude,really are you this stupid.Why is it that if you don't have facts you have to resort to lying. The Reds had 3 good hitters,Phillips,
Votto and bruce.Rolen was old,and Cabrera,gomes,stubbs and Hernandez are not exactly MURDERS ROW
Uh, what exactly was I lying about, YanksLose?  All I said on the point was, "The Reds, who were supposed to have the top offense in the NL, got only 12 hits in the three games, and we took all three."  What part of that do you dispute?  The Reds did in fact lead the league in batting average, runs, total bases, home runs, slugging percentage, and RBIs, and were second (horrors! by one point) in OBP,.  I think most people would consider all that a sufficient basis for saying that they were "supposed to have the top offense in the NL."   I don't know which offensive categories you consider more critical than these, but I'm sure we'd all I'd like to hear!

And yes, according to my scorebook the Phillies did win all three playoff games against them.  And also according to my scorebook the Reds got only 12 hits.  Of course, you'll probably argue that that total got skewed by Roy Halladay throwing a no-hitter at them in Game 1, but that's how it goes.

So, again, what was I lying about?

You're probably right, Jake, that we shouldn't worry too much about his opinions.  But I just hate to let him off scot free, especially when he questions my integrity and accuses me of lying about baseball matters that I demonstrably wasn't lying about.
