Here’s the open discussion thread for Phillies’ talk and other topics.
The Phillies are 25-19 after going 3-3 this week. They took 2 of 3 from Miami and dropped 2 of 3 against Atlanta. They finished the home stand 5-4 and go on the road this week against the Tigers and Cubs. They still have the fifth best record in the NL.
The Phillies continue to get good starting pitching, good relief pitching, adequate defense, and timely hitting.
They are still playing much better than I expected. So, I’ll continue to enjoy and appreciate the good things that have happened to the Phillies so far this season.
Tommy Joseph started Sunday against a right-handed pitcher. He went 0-4 and in an incredibly SSS is 0-7 against right-handed pitchers since his promotion. In the same SSS he is batting .444 against left-handed pitchers with a home run and his only RBI. His SSS slash is .250/.294/.732 with 1 BB and 6 K in 16 AB.
