Lets be real, this team sucks. I honestly don't remember a team this void of MLB caliber players. So many of these guys wouldn't even be on the bench of most MLB teams, let alone the starting lineup. Marcell Ozuna/OF (.333/.855) and Chris Coghlan/OF (.297/.792) seem to be the only threats.
ERA - 4.07 (17th)
WHIP - 1.35 (24th)
The starting pitching in this series is capable of shutting down the Phillies offense [Koehler (3.22/1.07), Nolasco (3.69/1.15), and Turner (1 start, 0.00 ERA)]. Of course, Adam Eaton might toss a no-hitter against this sad sack of a squad too. Even that douche-nugget, Chad Qualls, is pitching well for them (2.95/1.08).
Low scoring series and the Phils still won't reach even ground (.500).
Big Z Update:
Carlos Zambrano has completed the first leg of his minor league tour. He made 2 starts for the Clearwater Threshers, twirling 10.1 scoreless innings. Next destinations- Reading or Lehigh Valley.
