Chase Utley will retire from baseball at the end of this season, capping a 16-year career that included a World Series championship with Philadelphia Phillies and an elder-statesman role with the Dodgers.

The six-time All-Star said he's leaving to spend more time with his wife and two young sons.

Family will understand when his next job is in on-the-field management. (I hope)
I've found it easier to tear up tickets at 8/1 instead of 8/5.

Cardinals fire manager Mike Matheny; bench coach Mike Shildt to serve in interim

The St. Louis Cardinals fired seventh-year manager Mike Matheny on Saturday night, a move that came shortly after an 8-2 loss to the Cincinnati Reds dropped them to 47-46 on the season.

The team named bench coach Mike Shildt interim manager. The Cardinals also relieved hitting coach John Mabry and assistant hitting coach Bill Mueller of their duties.

Fired Cardinals manager Mike Matheny holds no ill will

Acknowledging that his job had been on the line since last season, fired St. Louis Cardinals manager Mike Matheny still expressed thanks to his now-former team.

When Chase Utley was a high school senior, I handed him his yearbook at the Senior Picnic. I watched he and Milton Bradley--a class a head of Utley-- play quite a bit when they were in HS. When handing him his yearbook, I said, "You're quite a ballplayer Young Man." He thanked me in his stoic manner. That was around the time he was drafted in the 2nd Round by the Dodgers. His fielding was questionable, although he was an very good HS shortstop, his special ability was clearly as a hitter and he needed to learn to field so he smartly took a scholarship from UCLA and three year's later was drafted in the 1st round by the Phillies. Given my obvious effect on his life, I will be quite disappointed if he doesn't mention me in his HOF Induction speech. ;)
