Phillies should consider ‘opener’ to address bullpen woes

Could the Phillies using “openers” to start games be their answer to a currently unreliable bullpen? The Philadelphia Phillies bullpen continues to be overwhelmingly the worst in Major League Baseball. By yielding 40 earned runs in 35 1/3 innings, their 10.19 ERA ranks as the worst in the league through the first 12 games of a […] Phillies should consider ‘opener’ to address bullpen woes - That Balls Outta Here - That Balls Outta Here - A Philadelphia Phillies Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

Memorable night for all the wrong reasons; Phillies fall to Orioles

Tuesday was a memorable night at Citizens Bank Park, but for all the wrong reasons. From another bullpen disaster to a dropped infield popup, the Phillies pieced together one of their more excruciating defeats in recent memory in a 10-9 extra-inning loss to the Orioles. “We saw some stuff tonight that usually you definitely don’t see,” Rhys Hoskins said. “Some stuff that I’ve never seen on the field.”Third baseman Jean Segura called off Hoskins on a popup to the right of the mound in the ninth inning, only to have the ball drop allowing two runs to score. Then in the tenth, Roman...

Inexcusable: Orioles 10, Phillies 9

James Lang-USA TODAY Sports That can’t happen. It has been a while in this team’s history where a win like the Phillies had last night caused as much angst and consternation as last night’s game did. What the team really needed as soon as possible was a morale boosting victory, one without drama, without second guessing, without any of that extra stuff that tends to linger for a day or two. The Orioles, at least in theory, provided the perfect opportunity to grab such a victory. Sending Zack Wheeler to the mound against Baltimore seemed like it would be easy enough. He’s been as...

Photo by Mitchell Leff/ Win. Or else.... You know when the Phillies play bad teams, yet somehow still get the everlasting crap beat out them? That’s the fear that exists right now with this three game set against the Baltimore Orioles. On paper this shouldn’t be a close one. The Phillies have the edge in almost every category you can think, but Baltimore has actually played quite well thus far this season. It’s the exact type of perfect storm that could see the team getting swept at home. Hopefully, tonight, the Phillies put those fears to rest and open with a bang. For the...
