This season hasn’t gone as planned by the Phillies, they’ve been in last place for most of the season already. Fans, and people that know baseball wondered what has been wrong with this team. We seem to know that the team is older, but that doesn’t mean that they can’t play the game.
At times this year, this team has looked anemic, and a team that just can’t put the pieces of the puzzle together. They’ve also looked like a team that can’t get the basics of the game down very often. They’ve looked uncharacteristically sloppy at times.
In between those times that this team has looked poor, there has been glimpses of what this team is capable of. The last three games, the Phillies looked very capable as they have won 3 games against a team that has almost run the table on the NL this season so far.
The Phils have one more game against the Brewers tonight in Milwaukee and then they go home to play the Nationals for 3 games and then most of the team, except Chase Utley, will have a 4-day break for the All-Star Game.
