#Horrible

The Phillies are 0-5-1 since a victory last Tuesday against the Braves. They have been outscored 50-11 in that stretch. Sandberg has referred to their play as "unacceptable".


During the final week of Spring Training, teams are supposed to be fine tuning things and gearing up for the season.  The Phillies are NOT doing that.  They are pitching worse, hitting worse, and fielding worse. This team is worse than many think.  I fully expect 100+ losses, worst record in baseball, and the fewest runs scored.  No delusions of grandeur here, this team is horrible.

On offense they've averaged the fewest runs per game, and stake claim to the lowest batting average and OPS.  In the pitching department, they've surrendered the most homeruns, have the 26th worst ERA, and have allowed an .809 OPS to opponents.

Phils released Slowey (odd name for pitcher) leaving the 5th spot to the competition between O'Sullivan and I believe Wilson Valdez will be brought back in. Personally I think they should just invest in a pitching machine.

Now O'Sullivan's ERA stands at 135.00 after yesterdays pounding.

O'Sullivan is a very bad pitcher, in both the Majors and Minors.

Hoping they go get Jhoulys Chacin or Paul Maholm.

Dom Brown to DL. Phillies will likely have one of the worst Opening Day starting outfields ever. Wouldn't be surprised to see Revere/LF, Herrera/CF, and Danks/CF.

Herrera has never played at the MLB level, Danks has been poor, and Revere is barely mediocre.

Burrell, Victorino, and Werth oh how we miss you.

Hell, I miss Pence, Victorino, and Juan Pierre.

Andy Oliver is getting sloppy. The walks are mounting. That's been his nemesis during his career.

Giles still doesn't look right.

People rave about how good this bullpen is going to be, I'm not counting on it.
