There were two separate stories percolating at Citizens Bank Park on Wednesday night.



Chase Utley was making his long-awaited season debut. It was a very important story because Utley is very important to the Phillies' chances of rescuing what has so far been a disappointing 2012 season.



The other interesting drama featured the decision of Phillies management to try to get through the night on the arms of a bullpen that entered the game with a 4.41 ERA, the sixth-worst in the majors.
