19 runs later the Phillies lose in what were the worst uniforms I’ve ever seen two teams wear for a game and surprise, it’s all weekend? What is the MLB coming to?
I don’t know what it is about the Miami air, but the Phillies just can’t seem to beat a team that is at the bottom of the basement in the NL East. In a game where I can’t remember ever seeing the worst uniforms as we have for player’s weekend, and that is all across baseball. Maybe that’s the reason for the Phillies loss by a 19-11 score? The unis were the most plain and drab looking things I’ve ever seen, in fact, I don’t even want to watch another game in the series to see the unis again.
I just…I…man, these uniforms are not working for me. Generally speaking, the Players Weekend thing leaves me a little flat, so maybe there’s a bias there. But, FWIW, the black jerseys do look better than the white ones.

The Phillies were in all black, and the Marlins were in all white. No accents, just a plain jersey, and pants. This is the way all the teams were decked out, and twitter among other social media outlets was alight in terrible comments about this uniform choice by the MLB. They need to stop with all this, it’s really annoying now.

Back to the game last night, Vince Velasquez should be along side of Nick Pivetta in packing his bags soon from the Phillies team, this experiment should be over, they need starting pitching. Eflin is looking over their shoulders too, the Phils have kept these three far too long now, they are inconsistent and not reliable in a rotation or elsewhere.
The Phils had coasted to a 6-0 lead in the 2nd inning, and we must remember that the Marlins had just lost 6 in a row, but the Phillies should have made it 7 in a row, but as we know, that is what the Phils can’t do to teams sometimes. To allow a team to storm back like that is a crime, especially a team like the Marlins. If you read yesterday’s post right here at fightinphillies.com – I pondered can the Phils beat the Marlins?
The whole pitching staff last night was terrible. Their ERA’s are terrible, can the Phillies staff this team with qualified pitching? I don’t think the answer is yes, it’s plain to see that except for Nola, this staff is pretty much a house of cards most of the time. Who is in charge of the pitching sourcing, surely not the sabermetrics department- or are they?
The Phils get embarrassed, giving up 19 H on 19 R and get solidly beat by a team that should have continued their losing streak.
