Chase Utley is eligible to play tonight. But he’s not going to spend time answer the media’s questions about it beforehand. He just released a statement about everything:
“The Players Association and my agent are handling the appeals process. I have nothing more to say other than to reiterate that I feel terrible about Ruben’s injury. Now my teammates and I are focused on Fame 3 and doing everything we can to win this series.”
And with that the media asked no more questions about the matter and everyone else just totally dropped it, never to discuss the matter again.
