This Offense Sucks

7 games, 20 runs.

.285 On Base %.

13 extra base hits.

Jim Thome, Laynce Nix, and Brian Schneider 1-18 with 6 K.

Placido Polanco .415 OPS.

At least they're not the Pirates, who have scored a MLB low 11 runs. Of course, the Buccos did take 2 of 3 from the Phils in the Opening Series...

Welcome Aboard Fontenot:
Mike Fontenot is a small (5'8" 165 lb) 31 year old left-handed hitting utility infielder with 6 MLB seasons under his belt. The Giants released him near the end of spring training and the Phillies just signed him to a minor league contract. He can play 2nd, 3rd, and SS adequately. I mean, he's no Freddy Galvis with the glove, but who is? With the Cubs and Giants he's hit .263/.738 in 535 games. He's a definite upgrade over Pete Orr and even Michael Martinez and possibly Galvis too. However, big ups to Freddy Galvis on his first career homerun last night.

Glavis must be reading WSBGMs...for inspiration. Who to pick on next to motivate their sorry ass?

I'm much more angry that Lee wasn't too good last night than I am at the offence- the Phils couldn't hit Dickey for shit even when healthy. If the next two games have similar offensive output, then I'm going to be paniced.

I love the Phillies, but this team isn't good.

Top 3 in the rotation are awesome, and the rotation as a whole is solid.

Bullpen is very hit or miss, other than Papelbon.

The offense is horrible. Like bottom of the fucking barrel horrible.

I don't care if they haven't even played 10 games yet, I am in panic mode, because unless something changes this team is going to struggle to finish .500, let alone contend for the playoffs.

Give ME a damn bat and I'll get a hit. F these guys! Fing pathetic!

Me thinks these guys need a couple of those big FAT plastic T-Ball bats, then maybe they could get a hit!! This OFFENSE stills SUCKS!!!
It's getting hard to watch!

Get ready for a long season, full of low scoring games and losing.
