Here’s the open discussion thread for Phillies’ talk and other topics.
The Phillies are 29-34. They went 1-5 last week. They took 1 of 3 from the Cubs at CBP before getting swept by the Nats in DC. They play 2 away then 2 home v. Blue Jays before a 4 game home stand with the Diamondbacks.
We have reached the point in the season where the standings will show the wild card race, or as we now it, the race for a top draft pick. The Phillies .460 winning percentage has them with the 23rd best record, or 8th worst.
