This was a winnable game, and once again the Phillies bullpen gave it away. But Seranthony wasn’t the only one to blame.

How concerned should Phillies be about Tommy Hunter?

Tommy Hunter has certainly had some rough moments early on this season. Should the Phillies be concerned about their $18 million reliever?
