Yes we have more Philadelphia Phillies players being admitted onto the DL list. You will be happy with this name. I know I sure was a little ecstatic.
One player is Chase Utley. He seemed to have sprained a ligament in his right thumb while sliding into second base last night in the Phillies-Reds game. He will be out for 15 days and will miss the All-Star game.
Player number two is Placido Polanco. Despite receiving a cortisone shot in his right elbow where he is feeling “soreness and discomfort”. He will miss the Mid-Summer Classic as well.
Aw. So sad! Their replacements are said to be Greg Dobbs and Brian Bocock.
These injuries come at a perfect time. With the Phils already in third place, they can ill-afford to have these guys on the DL. The Mets need to push these guys even farther in the standings. I hate to say it, but so do the Braves. I do not mind if it is a fight for the top between Mets and Braves. Only if it is Mets, Braves, and Phillies. This is the perfect time to strike.
