Hov, what's your carbon footprint?
Phillies second baseman Chase Utley is a lock to lower the average gas mileage of your fantasy team. Same goes for Troy Polamalu and his compact Kia on the gridiron. I would suggest drafting Bill McKibben, but he is pretty much guaranteed to hit no higher than .260. More on Utley from phillies.com:
Utley said he plans to buy a hybrid car that would get profoundly better gas mileage than the trucks owned by teammates Jon Lieber and Aaron Rowand. Lieber's custom-built Ford F-650 gets 12 miles per gallon.
"I don't think we're really on the same page," Utley said. "Maybe I'll show them the movie."
Utley plans to watch another film, "Who Killed The Electric Car?" a documentary that explores the birth, limited commercialization and eventual death of the battery electric vehicle in the U.S., specifically the General Motors EV1 of the 1990s. The film explains the role of car manufacturers, the oil industry, the U.S. government and consumers in squashing the development of the technology.
