Updated 2015 Phillies Projections

After yesterday's embarrassing loss to the Division II University of Tampa, baseball gurus around the globe went back to their trusty computer programs and rehashed the Phillies 2015 projections.  Many were already picking them to be the worst team in baseball, but it appears they'll be even worse than originally believed.

Updated 2015 Philadelphia Phillies record: 2-160.  

The omnipotent minds over at foresee Cole Hamels leading the Phils to an Opening Day victory against the Red Sox, then promptly being traded to them the following day.  The other lone win of the season is predicted for August 4th against the Dodgers.  It will be a pitching duel between Clayton Kershaw and Jerome Williams, with the only run of the game being scored, ironically enough, on a Jimmy Rollins error.  Jerome tosses a perfect game.

Excited for the season yet?!

Will Rollins hit 500+ against the Phillies this year? I'm excited to see that match up.

So your saying Kershaw will be having a done year leading the league in unearned run against the Phillies when he faces Jerome Williams.

Utley hurt, not to play in any games this week.

Bob D said...

Hernandez and Herrera are the back up 2nd basemen the team has that have any upside. Herrera would be great to have stick with the team. He can hit with good OB% and a good eye.

Phillies are known to downplay injuries all too much. So when in July they are still saying Utley will begin a running program I still won't believe them.

Phillies downplay injuries...mwahhahahahahahahahaha!

5-5 tie with the Yankees in the Grapefruit League opener.

Howard 2 hits.

Buchanon and Williams 2 shutout innings apiece.

Hollands 4 runs in 2/3 of an inning. keeps hyping him like he's something so good, but I just don't see it. It's mediocre, not good. He could improve, but I don't see what others are seeing.

Its the first spring training game - really no one cares and there's nothing to take home from it

GM-Carson said...

Herrera with 3 stolen bases today and 3-4 at the plate.

Bob D said...

Yes the Phillies downplay injuries. Take for instant when Chad Durbin showed up at the ball park missing his pitching arm and he was still thrown into the fire.

Ryan Howard has shown up at spring training as if on a mission leaner, meaner hitting machine. Ready to sacrifice a live chicken to Jobu!

GM-Carson said...

I'm rooting for Howard for multiple reasons.

1. He was a HUGE part of the Phillies run of success (2007-2011).

2. He seems like a good dude.

3. If he does well, it makes trading him easier.
