Here’s the open discussion thread for Phillies’ talk and other topics.
The Phillies are a tantalizing 9-10, and a game-and-a-half out of the second wild card. However, they are still the worst hitting team in the NL with a .230 AVG and .287 OBP. Their .287 SLG and .659 OPS rank ahead of only the equally pathetic Padres and Braves.
The Phillies have struck out the third most at 166, have walked the least with 46, and have the lowest runs per game at 3.26. Their 7.53 hits per game is only slightly ahead of league worst Milwaukee. They have the worst SB % at 52.9% (9 of 17).
Organization rosters for all full season teams have been updated from the affiliates’ web sites. They have been added as a selection on the Rosters selection on the menu.
