On pace for 73 wins, which means they would avoid 90 losses. I have to believe that would be considered a successful season in light of the rebuild.
How about this division into three parts: The Phillies started 24-17 then went 6-26 and has since gone 12-5. Lovely.
One of the weirdest splits you'll see if Maikel Franco's home/road. In Citizens Bank Park, he's hitting .229/.261/.379 compared to .296/.372/.570 on the road.
The hemorrage has been stopped for the time being, with the Phillies having won four of their last six. A six-game homestand against the Royals (again, note the dreadful road record) and Braves begins on Friday, too.
Here was last week's Phillies comment: "It was almost four weeks ago that the Phillies were seven games over .500 and just a half-game out of first. They have gone 6-18 since then." Since last week the Phillies lost seven more games without a win. So it's 6-25 in a bit over a month.
It was almost four weeks ago that the Phillies were seven games over .500 and just a half-game out of first. They have gone 6-18 since then.
The Jerad Eickhoff curveball is a sight to behold.
The Phillies have lost nine of their last 11 and are now back to .500 for the first time since they were 10-10. This is probably more of what we'll see moving forward, too.
Just about everyone outside that locker room and parts of the fan base expects a big crash. They've now lost four of five including a series loss to the Braves. Also, in the next few weeks they have six games each against the Nationals and Cubs. Uh oh. (And, yes, "ACTUALLY" Guy, I know the Phillies swept the Nationals last time they played -- I'm just pointing out it's a tough upcoming schedule).
All this despite a sub-par start -- at least in terms of average and on-base percentage -- from Maikel Franco.
