Some Phillies Links for You, August 23, 2010: Myers Returns, Biddle Back in PA, Gillies Issues

A position shift in future for Phillies' Utley?
I loathe the AutoPlay ad, but this piece has generated a fair amount of discussion. I'd be more inclined to buy into the central premise if Utley's injuries were suffered as a result of playing second base, or if he were just an average fielding second baseman. Neither is the case.

Phillies' top draft pick Biddle looks sharp in Class-A debut

Biddle's performance was respectable enough. He went four innings, giving up one run on three hits, striking out four batters and walking two.

Not bad at all. This pick is looking pretty good so far.
