Chase Utley Summons Jobu

I know the blogs have already covered this story here, here and here. But I'd be remiss if I didn't mention Chase Utley turning to voodoo to cure his recent hitting slump. After all, our roundup is named Curveballs For Jobu. So when Chase decided to build a voodoo shrine to help bust his slump, I gots to write about it.

Utley hasn't hit a home run since May 20th and was hitting a mere .180 over the past 25 games. Somehow, he has managed to escape any bashing from Phillies' fans. An impressive feat in it's own right. But the All Star second baseman needed to do something to break out of his slump. When in doubt, it's voodoo time.

The Zo Zone describes it for us...
Three of the bats formed a triangle. At the top of the triangle sat the Red Bull (the tin placed atop it), apple, orange, banana and vitamins.

Nice handy work, Chase.

"I don't know what you're talking about," he replied.

But those who know say Utley was the culprit.
I live in New Orleans, I know voodoo works. But that's one messed up offering he's making. Red Bull, fruit, vitamins and a can of dip? No money or booze or virgins? Yikes. Chase should at least rum up that offering some. Although, I hear you can't trust Ross Gload around free booze. And we all know it's very bad to steal Jobu's rum.
