My Long Nightmare Might be Over

Oh frabjous day! A report in today's Philadelphia Inquirer says what Phillies Phans have longed to hear since that horrible afternoon of July 26: If he gets the OK from hand surgeon Randall Culp, Chase Utley could be back in the lineup in time for the Mets series at Citizens Bank Park next week. From the article:

"I hope so," Utley said yesterday. "I'd hope it would be earlier than that. But again, I don't really know. It's going to depend on what the doctor says and also how it feels. If it feels good . . . "

(And if you think that photo is cute, check this out.)
