KC's View:
I was looking at the NFL standings, and noticed that the Detroit Lions are 0-5 ... which makes me think that they ought to reach out to Chase Utley for help ... since based on his behavior over the weekend, he'd clearly rather be playing football than baseball. He should trade in his LA Dodgers jersey for a Lions uniform.

The marginally good news, as far as it goes, is that Utley has been suspended for the next two games of the playoffs ... which is the very least that baseball could do.
