This just in: Chase Utley has just been named NL player of the week. His credentials pretty much speak for themselves. Last week he went 14 for 29 with 3 HR, 8 RBIs, a .483 AVG and a .862 SLG. On the season, he ranks second in the majors with a .581 slugging percentage and among second basemen he is second in both hits (38) and RBIs (24). It no wonder the Phils are riding an eight game winning streak since among the other nominees for the award included Rheal Cormier (five games, 2-0, 0.00 ERA), Tom Gordon (0.00 ERA, six strikeouts, four saves), Ryan Howard (.304 average, three homers, nine RBIs) and Aaron Rowand (.333 average, three homers, nine RBIs). Needless to say it was a perfect week for the Phillies.
