Finally, a smart base runner

The Dodgers won last night in large part because of Chase Utley’s alert and aggressive base running. (And because Clayton Kershaw is the best pitcher on the planet.)utley

The Dodgers have been awful and foolhardy on the bases this season. Utley, an L.A. native who probably played organized games year-round growing up, is one of the smartest players in the majors (he’s a UCLA alum, so what did you expect?). His new teammates can learn a thing or two by watching him.

Utley is 36 but still has some ball left to play. Trading for him last week was a good move by the Dodgers.
