Zach Eflin and Nick Pivetta’s struggles put the Phillies in a tough spot

Zach Eflin and Nick Pivetta’s struggles put the Phillies in a tough spot

Bill Streicher-USA TODAY Sports When Saturday night’s game between the Phillies and Padres began, the team was riding higher than it had in what felt like months. They had just hired Charlie Manuel to take over as hitting coach, and everyone seemed energized. Bryce Harper’s walk-off grand slam became the signature moment of the 2019 season thus far, the Phils’ offense had awoken and the team was riding a four-game winning streak. For a little while on Saturday night, it seemed like the good times were going to roll. But after jumping ahead 3-0 after three innings, everything began...

Can Bryce Harper still have a successful season?

Can Bryce Harper still have a successful season?

Photo by Mitchell Leff/ I’ve been meaning to write this piece for a couple of weeks now, but last night’s walk-off grand slam heroics gave me the kick in the butt I needed to finally post it. So here’s the basic question - what would it take for you to consider Bryce Harper’s 2019 season a success? The reason for the question isn’t that hard to discern. After Harper signed a then-record-setting contract in the off-season, most Phillies fans would have argued, some quite vociferously, that his 2019 season has been a bust. Sure, he has over 12 years left to prove to us that...

Phillies two-strike approach led to Harper’s big moment

Phillies two-strike approach led to Harper’s big moment

Bill Streicher-USA TODAY Sports Putting the ball in play worked, how about that? Bryce Harper’s grand slam last night will probably go down as the most memorable moment of the 2019 season, unless of course, the Phillies make the playoffs. But as much as Harper’s blast, it was three at bats by the bottom of the lineup that helped get the Phils’ most dangerous bat to the plate in the 9th. There is a belief by many new-school baseball minds that strikeouts are no big deal and that they are no different that pop ups, fly outs, and grounders. Most of the time, these people are correct....

Game Thread 8/16: Padres at Phillies

Photo by Mitchell Leff/ Oooooooooooooooh boy. The Phillies swept the Cubs last night, on the grand slam that the team has needed for probably about eight weeks. It was the kind of moment that this season has been criminally short on, and sure, it may lead to more cool things. But for now, let us bask in the glory of a fully worked-up Bryce Harper who, if fully weaponized, could drag the Phillies into the postseason by his teeth. And if not, hey, they can’t take that grand slam away. Tonight we get a good look at the Padres, a team on which Fernando Tatis, Jr. has been massively...
