More interleague play this weekend? Seriously? Haven't we had enough already? July and a return to NL games can't come soon enough for the Phillies.
The Phillies are now 3-9 in interleague play. Only the Padres have a worse interleague record, at 3-12. (The Dodgers also have the Phillies' 3-9 record.) But, the Phillies have the worst differential between their NL-only play and their interleage play. By far.
Below is a chart showing the NL teams that have been most helped and most hurt by interleague play. The differential is the difference between the team's winning percentage in interleague play and their winning percentage in NL-only play. A positive differential indicates the team is better in, and thus helped by, interleague play; a negative differential indicates the opposite.
