Chase Utley is about as well-liked in New York City as Tom Brady and Bill Belichick. So when Utley went on WFAN's Boomer and Gio show on Wednesday morning, it went about as well as you'd expect. 

A common theme of the radio appearance was the mention of Utley's slide into Mets shortstop Ruben Tejada in the 2015 NLDS. 


On that play, Utley broke Tejada's leg while doing something that resembled sliding into second base. Tejada still hasn't spoken to the then-Los Angeles Dodger to accept his apology, or even accept a bottle of tequila from Utley which was meant to make amends. 

Most of Utley's appearance on the show was a series of callers with cliche words to say, such as “I respect you as a player, but I hate you,” per The 7 Line. But other fans, such as the final caller, were brutal towards Utley. How did the Mets mortal enemy respond? By belittling one caller as a 'sweetheart' after the fan was cut off by radio producers. 


It probably doesn't help either that the second baseman had played for the Mets' division rival Philadelphia Phillies for 13 seasons prior to his trade out west. 


The only surprise is how well Utley handled all the heat.
