On the day the Phillies phound out Chase Utley will be out eight weeks after thumb surgery, Jimmy Rollins had this to say via MLB.com:
"We'll find a way. We're not going anywhere. No one in this clubhouse is going to fold. No one is going to feel sorry in this clubhouse. We dang sure know they're not going to feel sorry for us outside this clubhouse. They still have to knock us off, and they're out there trying to do it, but we'll keep fighting to hold on."
The Phillies are without Utley, Placido Polanco, Carlos Ruiz, Ryan Madson, Chad Durbin, J.A. Happ and Antonio Bastardo.
Key Mets currently on the DL: Carlos Beltran, Luis Castillo, Oliver Perez, John Maine. Plus Angel Pagan and Jose Reyes are banged up.
Key Braves currently on the DL: Jason Heyward, Nate McLouth.
Phillies win in terms of being the most injured NL East contender at the moment.
