08:16 AM ET 03.10 | Chase Utley's status for Opening Day is now up in the air. Simply put: Utley and the Phillies do not know what to expect. They do not know when, or if, he will return to the field in 2011. They do not know how, exactly, they will treat his balky right knee. What is known: Utley is suffering from bone inflammation and a condition called chondromalacia that has caused severe pain in his right knee. And for the first time since the Phillies shut him down in February, they did not publicly rule out surgery as an option. "We're trying to do this non-operatively," Amaro said. ... "Our hope is that he is ready for Opening Day. I don't know if that is going to happen." Utley, 32, said he was trying to keep the big picture in mind as the team evaluated treatment options.

If you guessed the Philladelphia Daily News, you're a winner!

Copied & Pasted directly from philly.com:

"Utley is suffering from bone inlammation"

"they did not publicly rulse out surgery "

Further proof that drinking the Philadelphia tap water negatively affects the human brain pan.

The Red Sox wouldn't be hurt they have so excellent many players that could move in.

Too bad they didn't move in 2010.

How are the Red Sox even remotely related to this.
Pena is the back up for Jeter, there, more unrelated nonsense.

Who is the back up for pedroia anyway, since someone has Red sox on the brain.

Everybody wants to be better than the Phillies... well, it's just not to be. With or without Utley. Just move on and enjoy whatever your team may accomplish.

The Red Sox have a much deeper team than the Phillies. If both teams stay healthy all year, the Sox will prevail.

Prevail?

They're in two different leagues. The only way they'll meet up is in the World Series and that's a crapshoot.

I agree, Dave.

The Phillies have a wicked pitching staff. On paper, they're the team is the class of the NL. Even without Utley, they're a better team than the current champs.

I would agree that their pitching staff is the class of the NL on paper. I would disagree that their bats are on the same level.

Correction!!!! Their starters maybe the class of the NL, but total talking about total staff SF is better. If Dominic Brown and Chase Ugly are hurt most of the season the, Braves win the east. They are just too young and hungry, after that playoff series against SF last year they are gonna want to show and prove
