MLB: Philadelphia Phillies at New York Mets Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports

You don’t want to say that the Phillies dodged a bullet yesterday....but the Phillies dodged a bullet yesterday. The offense is struggling right now and the last thing they probably needed was to face the best pitcher on the planet on his home mound. With the rainout, the Phillies were able to avoid Jacob deGrom yesterday and traveled home to await St. Louis. It’s not the worst outcome in the world since it maybe gave the team a chance to reset mentally and get ready for another homestand where they performed well to begin the season.

On to the links.
