UTLEY IS MEAN — In some shocking results to Sports Illustrated‘s latest poll, Chase Utley was voted the 2nd meanest player in baseball by 215 of his peers.
Slapped in between A.J. Pierzienski and Milton Bradley, two of the game’s three biggest a-holes, Utley is apparently a nasty guy. I know his all-out gritty play can irk opposing teams, especially Jonathan Sanchez of the Giants, but mean?
Oh, and Nyjer Morgan was 9th on the list. I rest my case.
