A holiday normally associated with barbecues, and big sales sometimes gets lost in the translation of the real meaning of the holiday, it’s Memorial Day 2019.  Oh, and baseball is sometimes associated with the holiday as well. A time for thanks and memorializing the fallen soldiers that gave their all in the service of keeping this country free. It’s an American holiday with a deep debt that was paid by many for the population.

A time for baseball today as ESPN has it’s Triple Header on tap for the baseball fanatics, but us Phillies fans get the day off, as do the players who will enjoy a rare holiday off with family and friends. We start up yet another important series with St. Louis on Tuesday night.

Let’s take a look at a list of Cardinals that have hit the Phillies hard, specifically the top 20 or so when it comes to RBI against the Phillies:

The Cardinals have been through a lot of changes, very similar to the Phillies, but they are doing ok at this point at .500 but this is team the Phillies should be beating, so we’ll see how they do against the Cards.

Harper looks in a reflective way in Milwaukee with the loss to the Brewers on Sunday, he leads the league in strikeouts at 73

A day off, some rest, a little reflection, and the Phillies should be back strong and ready to play some winning ball.
