WATCH: New Dodger Chase Utley Gives Emotional Goodbye To Philadelphia
Chase Utley has been a member of the Philadelphia Phillies for his entire MLB career. That changed yesterday, when the struggling Phils dealt Utley to the Dodgers for two prospects and some cash.
That's weird, because Utley has been the face of the franchise for about a decade now. He helped them win a World Series in 2008. He's been in the MVP conversation multiple times. He's one of the best second basemen ever. And now, like the team that traded him, he's pretty much an afterthought (a .217 batting average so far this year).
But that doesn't make his goodbye to Philadelphia any less emotional and real. Here's his full presser, alongside GM Ruben Amaro Jr., where he talks about leaving the city behind and the people he wanted to thank.
He will remember you. Will you remember him?
