Game Thread 8/13: Cubs at Phillies

Photo by Rich Schultz/ Charlie Manuel is IN. John Mallee is OUT. And now it is time to play baseball. As you’ve already heard, the Phillies underwent some changes today. You can feel the new offense coursing with hits already as the Phillies begin a series with the Cubs, with technically some remaining playoff contention on the line. But does it really feel like that? Feels great to be home. #RingTheBell : @NBCSPhilly : @SportsRadioWIP : https://t.co/ouhKJz3nyl or https://t.co/vgbMhIMsON pic.twitter.com/5aZvKepDnq— Philadelphia Phillies (@Phillies) August 13, 2019

Craig Kimbrel after a walk-off loss | Photo by Dylan Buell/ A bad road team going against Charlie Manuel? It doesn’t seem fair After a road trip that could have gone better, the Phillies return home to take on the Cubs. At first glance, the Cubs are a tough opponent, but then you see their road record, and they don’t seem quite as impressive.

On The Horizon: Cubs vs. Phillies series preview

Photo by Kyle Ross/Icon Sportswire via The Phillies have sort-of contended this year. As they did in 2018, the Phillies got off to a hot start in 2019, inhabited first place for much of the early part of the year, then struggled to hang on to contention as the season reached late August.
