I’ve been hearing fans talking about trading Chase Utley. I’m about 99.999999999% sure that this won’t happen but to speculate this is not that insane. Here are my reasons;

1) You can use his money to sign Werth, a right-handed hitter you need desperately.

2) You can replace him with Orlando Hudson (FA) or Dan Uggla (assuming he is a FA), both of whom put up similar numbers as Chase. Or do something radical like trading for David Wright and putting Polanco at 2nd.

3) His hip is not, has not, and never will be 100% since he had that surgery. In fact, his hip is just going to get worse. Rather trade him now while you can get something then when it’s to late.

4) His numbers have gone down the last 4 years and he’s 32 years old.

Reasons for keeping him;

1) Free agents look at Chase Utley and want to play with him

2) The fans will KILL you if you do
