In today's Inquirer: Utley's knee, Blanton, replacing Durbin

Your daily rundown of Phillies coverage in The Inquirer to read while you contemplate how Canada South will honour Roy Halladay today...

-- Chase Utley's knee bothered Ruben Amaro Jr. enough to want an MRI done. It showed Utley has patellar tendinitis, something he has dealth with before. But it used to go away quicker.

-- Time will catch up to everyone in this game, Phil Sheridan writes, and he wonders if it gained another step on Utley.

-- Bob Brookover goes Inside the Phillies and tells us why replacing Chad Durbin isn't a big deal for this team. Hint: It's in the numbers.

-- Within today's notebook, we discuss Joe Blanton's decent beginning and another good day for one of the RF candidates.
