Speaking of Third Base, Chase Utley was seen taking ground balls at Third Base. I know that the Philies have an up and coming Second Baseman and with Chase getting older, I think a move to Third Base would be a good idea.
I could see that happening.

People fail to realize how difficult Third Base is (almost as difficult defensively as shortstop, but expected to be a power position). If his arm strength is capable of handling it, I could see it since it's often viewed as a "retirement" position for middle infielders (Cal Ripken, A Rod, etc. all moved there). Plus, the Phillies could use some power from there and a healthy Utley could do that.
A-Rod moved to third due to the presence of one Derek Sanderson Jeter blocking him.
