Aaron Harang has been really bad all year for the Phils with his 6-15 record
It’s been a long season for this team and for the fans that have stayed in there and continued to watch them play even though at times it’s been very difficult.
The Phils finish up at home this year, with 3 more games against the Division winners, NY Mets and then the last three games against the Marlins over the weekend.
The Phillies vs. Mets match up has been especially hard to watch this year, as the Phillies are 2-14 in the series this year. The Mets have owned the Phillies this year for sure. Just think where the Mets would be if the Phillies were able to win just half of those games against the Mets. It wouldn’t have been so easy for the Mets to take this NL East crown if the Phils had played them better.
What was wrong with this team? Just about everything, but in the end it was the fact that this team couldn’t get the hits when they were needed the most. There were base runners, and runners in scoring position but the lack of clutch play was huge in this terrible season for the Phils.
The pitching was horrible too, not too much to brag about from this staff, it’s nearly last in all categories this season.
That was the incredible part, that all the coaches and staff were kept in tack from last year, and what we got was even a worse finish than last year. It’s really hard to believe that this coaching staff was not cleaned out of the Phillies team after the 2014 season let alone kept in for all of this debacle of a season. That’s almost an insult that something wasn’t done about that.
All the while, the prices keep rising for parking every year, and for tickets and the fans have really let it be known that they are not into paying to see this team the way they’ve played this year. Where will it go next year? This fan base may even shrink more as fans start to drop off from seeing this many losses in a year.
