Thanks for the Update ESPN

As if the Phillies losing wasn't enough, ESPN sent me this update via my cell phone after last night's loss...

The Phillies haven't scored in 20 straight innings and were shutout for the 6th time this season.

To put it bluntly, they suck!

Bobby Abreu - .240/.773 in 17 games. Would rather have him than Gwynn or Mayberry.

Remember when the Phil's would score 4 to 8 runs a game back in the day,those day's are long gone.

Remember when the Phils had a dominant offense and pitching to match?

Hahahahaha!

Remember when Pat Gillick was GM and we had a well balanced offense and defense? Crazy right?

*From MLBTradeRumors.com before last night's game:
The Phillies currently sit at four games under .500. While that leaves them just 4.5 games back in the NL East heading into the day’s action, the team is carrying a -34 run differential (third-worst in baseball) and falls among the bottom five clubs in the game in hitting, pitching, and defense by measure of fWAR.

23 innings and counting

Have they been woken from their slumbers?

Dom Brown and Cody Asche (or as my wife calls him, Kobe-ashi) coming alive. Having the two of them hitting will transform the offense.

Cole Hamels win #100.

Congrats.

Wil Nieves has been a great if inconsequential pickup. Sometimes RAJ does get it right, I remember us all being skeptical of that signing.

This team has scored in spurts this year. but they get down right cold at times as we have seen 3 times this year.

Remember when 20 runs scored in 2 games happened every other day?
