Chase Utley hit five home runs and didn’t make it out of the Home Run Derby’s first round last night. No big deal, really. I was content watching Josh Hamilton treat Yankee Stadium like a Guns N Roses pinball machine.
The real story with Utley this morning isn’t really a story at all, just a hilarious slip in a moment of sarcasm.
Dig (hat tip to The 700 Level):
He says, “Boo? F**k you” sarcastically about the New York crowd to Dan Uggla.
I love it. Yeah, maybe he should’ve realized he was on microphone, but when do you get to hear Chase ribbing around like a regular guy? I love this little glimmer of character.
