Chase Utley's return to the Phillies lineup appears to be inching closer and closer. It could even happen during the team's current homesteand, of which they have eight games remaining.
Danny Knobler, a baseball writer for CBSSports.com, caught up with former Phillie Jayson Werth yesterday and asked him what Utley means to this team.
Werth's answer? "Everything."
"He's a game-changer," Werth said. "They are not too many like him. He
brings a mentality and work ethic to the workplace that's unparalleled
from anyone I've ever played with."
It's not anything most who follow the team closely didn't already know, but it is coming from a guy who spent four years alongside Chase in the clubhouse who now plays for the enemy.
If anything, Werth's quotes just remind us what the Phillies and us fans have been missing. As if we really needed any reminder.
But damn, when Utley comes to the plate at CBP for the first time this season, it's gonna be electric.

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. -- President Donald Trump's new communications director is getting sacked on social media for quoting Joe Paterno while making a point about honor and dignity.
Anthony Scaramucci mentioned the late Penn State football coach's oft-cited line "act like you've been there before" during a CNN interview Thursday about his push to stop leaks to the press.
Penn State fired Paterno in 2011 over his handling of child sex abuse allegations against former defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky. A university-commissioned investigation concluded Paterno and others hushed up the allegations for fear of bad publicity.
Paterno, one of college football's winningest coaches, died of lung cancer in January 2012 at 85. He was never charged with a crime.
When Paterno died, Scaramucci tweeted he'd met the coach twice and considered him an "honorable man."
