Preview: Struggling Phillies and Ranger Suarez take on the San Francisco Giants at 6:45
The Phillies take on the San Francisco Giants tonight at 6:45 EST, looking to get back in the win column. The team has now lost four in a row, 11 out of their last 15, and currently sit 11.5 games back of the New York Mets in the NL East.
The last four games have been a shitshow for the Phillies. They can’t close out a game, Corey Knebel stinks, Joe Girardi stinks, the bats cant hit in extras, and so much more. They’re coming off a tough loss yesterday, where a three-homer game for the Phillies wasn’t enough, as they would lose to San Fran in extras.
The Phils will now turn their attention to today if they’re even awake. This is a sickening baseball team right now, and if they don’t turn it around quick, they’ll be out of this race before July even hits. If this team cared about winning, Joe Girardi would’ve been gone a week ago. But they’ve settled on mediocrity, being average, and disappointing their fans and the city year after year.
If I have to hear “we need to find ways to win games” one more time, I’m going to throw a brick straight through my head.
