For a few moments there, the Philadelphia Phillies were in first place. In mid-May. Without a single four-run inning to their credit this year.
Yes, it's been a bizarre, fun and interesting start to the Phils season, because they won't stop winning during the rebuild. How long will it last? We talk to Phillies beat writer Matt Breen about their success, the outstanding rotation, the underrated bullpen, what the Phils do about first base and Tyler Goeddel's surprising surge.
Also, Managing Editor of Baseball America J.J. Cooper joins the show to talk about why the Phillies seem to be dismissing the idea of drafting a high school pitcher with their top pick in next month's MLB Draft, and who the team might be looking at with that selection.
Plus, where have all the Latino managers in baseball gone, and how do we get games to stop going so long? Plus, our Stat of the Week.
