Chase Utley’s quick thinking throw to home plate in Game 5 of the 2008 World Series is voted the 2008 Postseason Moment of the Year by the fans in the This Year in Baseball Awards.

Chase Utley’s faking a throw to first and then throwing home to nail the Rays’ Jason Bartlett for the final out in the top of the seventh inning to keep Game 5 of the World Series tied has been voted the 2008 Postseason Moment of the Year by the fans in MLB.com’s annual This Year in Baseball Awards, receiving 35.6 percent of the votes, beating out fellow Phil Brad Lidge’s striking out Erik Hinske in the top of the ninth to clinch the Phillies winning of the 2008 World Series, 4 games to 1.

Congratulations on winning the fan award, Chase.

That was a very good play. What I don’t get is why Cole Hamels and Brad Lidge turned down the World Baseball Classic. They could have been very valuable pieces.

That was definately a very good play on Utley’s part. Shows that his head is in the game.
Now, as for why Cole Hamels and Brad Lidge turn down the invites from te US team for the World Baseball Classic, I honestly have no clue. I’m sure they have their reason and will therefore give them the benefit of the doubt.
