Chase responds big to either cheers or boos
If you don’t want Chase Utley to go off on you the best choice of action as a fan is to sit on your hands. Upon his return to NY, he was booed relentlessly and even watched a fastball sail behind him. He responded to this by driving in four runs in the first game and hitting two home runs and driving in five runs in the second game including a grand slam.
Tonight, Philly phans gave Chase a standing ovation and then watched him dismantle their team with two home runs including a grand slam. Does that sound familiar? After each home run, Chase was given a standing ovation. The damndest thing you will ever see from an opponents phans.
