ESPN airs graphic saying the Phillies have six straight losses, sparking theories of a MLB Deep State on social media
The Philadelphia Phillies have won seven straight games and return home tonight to Citizens Bank Park to open up a weekend series against the Arizona Diamondbacks. Given the recent success of the team, it appears the national media is struggling to come to terms with the fact that the Fightins’ may actually be a decent baseball team this season.
Here is a picture of a Phillies graphic that aired on ESPN last night.
Scott Van Pelt, a true professional, apparently recovered nicely and made it clear that it was actually the Brewers who have lost 16 straight games. I would also like to add that the National League Central combined have lost 14 straight games. What a bunch of pathetic losers.
It’s really hard to be upset about this incident. As someone who leads the charge on the NBA Deep State and the fact that the national media and The Association have a mutual interest in trashing Joel Embiid and the Philadelphia 76ers, I’m not ready to jump into the MLB Deep State conversation quite yet.
The Phillies are red hot, having won seven straight games to climb back to just one game under .500 at 28-29, but as we all know, the last decade has been everything but pleasant for baseball fans in the city of Philadelphia.
My guess is that the graphic design department at ESPN either dug up an old graphic or just assumed if anyone was talking about losing, they were likely talking about the Phillies so they just let it rip.
The Fightins’ are now 7-3 over their last 10 games and sit just one game below the .500 mark at 28-29. They will be home for the next six games playing the D-Backs and Nationals. The time to make a move in the National League East starts now.
