FanPost Friday: Who was your favorite Phillie from 2008?

With Chase Utley’s last week in Philadelphia (maybe) happening this past week, who is your favorite player from the World Series champion?

This past week, we saw the possible end of Chase Utley’s visits to Philadelphia as an active player. It was bittersweet since many fans got to say goodbye to the future Wall of Famer while also watching the many memories displayed on the scoreboard of that magical season when the team won the World Series.

For me, it’ll be sad knowing that my favorite player from that team won’t be coming here anymore as a player, but rather only for Alumni Weekends still to come, and perhaps, not even then. It’ll be odd knowing that Kashmir won’t be played anymore over the PA system for anyone else. I always loved Utley. He was easily my favorite player on that team, over the other guys like Chooch, Ryan, Cole, Jayson and JRoll. Not that I didn’t love those guys, but Utley was my guy. But I’m not going to bore you with why I loved Utley. Instead, I want to hear from you.

Who is/was your favorite player from that 2008 team? Tell me who it was and why you loved him. What made him your favorite player? Was it the way he played the game? His outgoing personality, or was it something else?
