Note about Chase Utley. He's no longer a Phillie.
According to several sources, and we'll go with Jon Heyman and also Hardball talk:

"Utley, of course, has spent his entire career in Philadelphia, where he has batted .282/.366/.481 in thirteen seasons. The heart and soul of the Phillies offense, he was the leader and star of teams which went to the playoffs every year between 2007 and 2011, winning the World Series in 2008 and another NL pennant in 2009...
Now Utley, whose bat has come back to life since coming off of the disabled list, is back in a pennant race. This time with the Dodgers, where he’ll man second base until Howie Kendrick comes back and then likely assume a utility and pinch-hitting role."
Wish Utley well. I never really thought he was a good fit if the Yankees were to trade for him to play second in the Bronx. Hell... maybe now that Bird is on fire, the Yankees will continue with the youth movement and bring up RR. We shall see.
