Tonight, a day after the Phillies beaned us three times to bring the total to 8 beanings on the year, Utley decides to make himself a Brian Dawkins-style missile to take out the defenseless Nationals catcher Jesus Flores.
It will be a long time before the Nationals should stop throwing at Utley. As far as I'm concerned, the Nationals would be completely justified to take out Utley, Howard, and Rollins. No, forget that. I say throw at Hamels.
This is war.
- The little angel on my shoulder is telling me I shouldn't blog for injuries. He's right. But I'm pissed. The Phillies have way more to lose than we do, and whatever happens would be their own damn fault. Flores is the best thing we have going (except maybe Lannan, Dukes). Intentionally attempting to hurt another player, which to my eyes is clearly what Utley did, is unforgivable. Tomorrow I'll probably feel differently, but right now I want payback.
