The Reds celebrate after beating the ‘hapless’ Phillies in 2 straight games

Once and for all, the Phillies are not a playoff team, they proved it again in Cincinnati the last two games in which they lost to the Reds. This team is just not a deserving playoff team, Gabe Kapler keeps his comments up that they are ‘scratching and clawing’ it seems more like they win a couple and lose a couple, no sense of urgency, no demand to win, no extraordinary efforts from the players on the field to go out there and win. They are more hapless and hopeless than anything else.

The bullpen gives up another game, but the offense wasn’t much better in the last two games

It’s embarrassing to say that the Phillies are in deed trying their hardest after every game they lose. That’s what the manager keeps reassuring people, but it’s all smoke and mirrors, nothing but hype and pardon the expression, bull *hit. That’s what this management’s message is, the team is constantly clawing, but they aren’t. They are just losing.

It’s going to be a long 3 more weeks of baseball, after the Phillies are officially eliminated, their will be different excuses and promises for the future. That’s another part of the smoke and mirrors from this management. It’s all an illusion, to make you think the Phillies are a winning team.

Now it’s off to New York, they will probably sweep the Phillies the way the Phils have been playing, it’s a real bad thing, hardly fun to watch anymore, you’d probably be better painting a wall in your house and watching it dry before you’d watch this team. Again today they were 2-11 with RISP, losing in extra innings by a score of 4-3.

If you care to watch though, on Friday in Queens, it will be Eflin vs. Matz at Citi Field.
