    I think utley pitching would end badly for the Phillies. But I would like to see more of this type of thing. I would be very entertained by watching the matchup.

    If the PH took the mound I have no doubt he would then be considered the pitcher of record. I don't think it is open for interpretation, the rule is very clear.

    Yes, it is very clear. This is a very old game and there are good reasons why this nonsense is not seen in MLB. Mainly:

    * Gee, our star 2nd baseman just hurt his arm or pulled a leg muscle b/c he is not a pitcher and has not trained to pitch. All for one batter in April... awesome!

    Not to mention making a mockery of a respected game. Utley throws pitch 1, Howard pitch 2, Rollins pitch 3, Revere pitch 4, etc, etc. Thank God for some rules. Maybe Vince McMahon will allow it if he starts the XLB.
    Small market fan... always hoping, but never expecting.
