R - 93 (13th tied)
AVG - .241 (22nd)
OPS - .658 (25th)
Paul Goldschmidt/1B (.330/.896) is a beast and Mark Trumbo/LF (7 HR/19 RBI) drops bombs. Miguel Montero/C (.276/.791) is a having a bounce back season, but other than that the lineup is under performing.
ERA - 5.39 (30th)
WHIP - 1.45 (28th)
Total crapfest going on here, and it has manager Kirk Gibson in hot water. Every starting pitcher has an ERA north of 4.50, so you know shit is hitting the fan. Relievers Joe Thatcher and Brad Ziegler are doing well at least, so they got that going for them, which is nice. They only pitch an inning here or there though, so no real silver lining.
Something is wrong in Arizona, and I'm hoping the Phillies exploit it. I say they take 2 outta 3 with the only loss being hung on Hernandez.
Freddy Galvis is now batting .040 (1-25). Yet, Sandberg keeps plugging him into the lineup.
