Utley not talking during his streak?

    Being a phanboy loooser, I pretty much read everything written about the suddenly not-quite-so-dogass Phils. Utley, lately, has been willing to talk about all kinds of stuff -- just nothing to do with the streak. As soon as he gets a streak question, he starts talking about anything else he can think of.

    As Yogi said, half this game is 90% mental.

    So if he THINKS talking about the streak will hurt him . . . it probably will.

    And given that the media's streak questions will be almost ALL the same . . . day after day after day . . . it's no big deal.

    I've never understood the need to ask the same question day after day. "How do you feel about the streak?" Do you think his answer's going to be any different from game 33 to game 34 to game 35?

    Jesus, just ask him something else, like if he asks for A-T-M.

    Or to be more accurate:

    "Chase, talk about the streak."

    Actually, I believe that was Danny Ozark's quote.

    Yogi's quote was: ``Baseball is 90 percent mental and the other half is physical.''

    He may be talking soon. El Dookie has him hitless through 3 at bats. Could just have 1 left.

    What difference does it make if he doesn't want to talk about it? Big fucking deal. Move on and ask other questions.

    buster olney said something funny last night on espn about how if the streak continues he'll have to start talking about it because 500 reporters like me (like buster -- not leo) will start following him around.

    it got me wondering if that's really true. with all the cutbacks how many papers would send someone with no connection to the phillies? i'm sure there will be more media than usual if he gets near pete rose's 44 but will it really be like mcguire and sosa in 98? i doubt it.

    Mets announcers were saying that Pete Rose had a press conference after every game in NY during the end of his streak.

    Utley should talk, lotsa interest in the story. But how much can you really say about it. "Yes I got a hit today, and I am gonna try and get one tomorrow too"

    That pretty much covers it

    So Major Reno, let's forget that little skirmish. Tell us what else happened in Montana.

    3-3 bottom 8th. Great chance they won't pitch around him.
