Realmuto, first baseman Rhys Hoskins and shortstop Jean Segura.

Is it time for a change at the top for the Phillies?

Is it time for a change at the top for the Phillies?

Joe Camporeale-USA TODAY Sports The current regime has overseen a rebuild that hasn’t rebuilt the Phillies into a true playoff contender. When the Phillies hired Matt Klentak following the 2015 season, everyone was prepared for the pain. Fans knew a grueling rebuild was coming. They knew the glory years of 2007-11 were behind them, that the franchise needed to introduce “analytics” into their organization, fill the farm system with top-tier talent that would provide the building blocks for the next era of Phillies baseball and essentially reconstruct every facet of the organization...

Phillies: Zach Eflin throws Game 1 gem vs. Blue Jays

Zach Eflin going the distance in Game 1 of Friday’s doubleheader was exactly what the starting pitching-depleted Phillies team needed. For a Philadelphia Phillies bullpen that entered Friday’s doubleheader against the Toronto Blue Jays with a Major League Baseball-worst 7.17 ERA, RHP Zach Eflin‘s Game 1 complete game shutout — coupled with a convincing 7-0 win — […] Phillies: Zach Eflin throws Game 1 gem vs. Blue Jays - That Balls Outta Here - That Balls Outta Here - A Philadelphia Phillies Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

Another doubleheader for this team, their third like seven days, against a Blue Jays that is coming in hot, currently holding on to the eighth seed in the American League. The Phillies are struggling, holding on for dear like before grim death grips the rest of the roster. Yay! Here are your lineups.

In another time and place, Brandon Workman was a capable reliever | Photo by Mark Brown/ The Phillies’ bullpen tour of misery continues against Toronto You probably don’t want to hear this, but here is the unfortunate truth: The Phillies have more games left to play in the 2020 season. I know it seemed like the past week should have marked the end of the season for the Phillies, but we’ve still got eleven more games to get through. And hey, the Phillies are still technically right in the mix for one of the many playoff spots that MLB has created for this season. (And forevermore...

They are each, in their own way, still in the playoff chase, so banking a win is something that is vital to each to continue that pursuit. For the Phillies, tonight is the debut of their former #1 pick Mickey Moniak. Fairly or unfairly, Moniak has taken criticism for not living up to the potential many observers associate with the top overall pick, but being able to reach the major leagues is a high point for any...

Bullpen blows another one, but Wheeler looks strong in Phillies loss to Mets

Bullpen blows another one, but Wheeler looks strong in Phillies loss to Mets

Zack Wheeler pieced together a strong performance on Wednesday night, especially considering he's dealing with a nail issue on his right middle finger. Unfortunately, the bullpen couldn't hold things together as the Phillies dropped a pivotal contest to the Mets, 5-4, at Citizens Bank Park.  Wheeler scattered seven hits and allowed three runs. He struck out two over a season-high 7 1/3 innings. “You can’t imagine the pain that he was in,” manager Joe Girardi said. Wheeler left with one out in the eighth inning. Adam Morgan came in as relief and surrendered a run allowing the Mets to...

Bryce Harper and the Phillies’ couldn’t get it done | Photo by Mitchell Leff/ The names change, but the results remain the same for the Phillies and their bullpen Looking at the pitching matchup for Wednesday night’s game between the Phillies and Mets, it wasn’t unreasonable to think the Phillies would come out on the losing end. And while they did indeed lose by a score of 5-4, here are a couple of things that did not happen in the game: The Phillies were not dominated by Jacob deGrom - The last time he faced the Phillies, the Mets’ ace dominated the Phillies’ hitters,...

Photo by Mitchell Leff/ Are your fingers alright? Zack Wheeler returns to the mound tonight, hopefully with the help of someone else in regards to putting on his pants. In retrospect, this will probably end up being a funny injury, one of the ones you chuckle about such as the player who had to miss a game because of spending too much time in a tanning bed. In the midst of a playoff chase - not funny at all. Wheeler will face his old team again tonight, this time facing off against the best pitcher in the National League.
