Was the Jake Arrieta signing bad for the Phillies?

Was the Jake Arrieta signing bad for the Phillies?

It has been a frustratingly erratic season for one of last off-season’s big free agent signings. When the Phillies entered spring training this year, it seemed obvious to most that the team’s weakness was in the starting rotation. You had Aaron Nola, who was coming off a solid 2017 season, as the top arm of the rotation, a top-20 pitcher in baseball, but after that, you had question marks up and down the rotation, with Vince Velasquez, Nick Pivetta, Zach Eflin, and Ben Lively expected to make up the rest of the starting-five.

The impossible dream: Phillies 5, Marlins 4

The impossible dream: Phillies 5, Marlins 4

Both starters, Vince Velasquez...

Game Thread 9/15: Marlins at Phillies

Hot dang, the Phillies won a ball game. Aaron Altherr absolutely monstered the Marlins last night, with some long distance contributions from Roman Quinn and Rhys Hoskins and an unblown 10+ run lead held up by Zach Eflin. With the Phillies not destined for a post season this year, watching young players rip the cover off the ball is the next best thing. Vince Velasquez gets the ball. Here's how we'll line up tonight behind Vinny. #BeBold : @NBCSPhilly, @YouTubeTV : @SportsRadioWIP : https://t.co/wsswL6NND5 pic.twitter.com/4O4qsDM1CQ— Philadelphia Phillies (@Phillies) September 15,...
