Chase Utley

Chase Utley of the Phillies led MLB with 192 Total Runs in 2008, reflecting not only his offensive prowess but also his sterling defense—he had 34 Defensive Runs Saved and played second base (and a bit of first) for a total of 1,409 2⁄3 innings. Albert Pujols, who was second in MLB with 171 Total Runs, won the National League MVP Award. From 2005 through the first week of May 2010, Utley had 907 cumulative Total Runs, the best in MLB during that period. (©THE PHILLIES 2010 / PHOTO BY MILES KENNEDY)
