The Phillies’ defense is bad. I’m not sure how much more we can frame it, but it’s just one of those things that has added up this year to make the whole season an adventure.
That’s all. Don’t have much more to add here. Have a great weekend.
On to the links.
- Always nice when the Phillies get positive national coverage, even if it’s Bailey Falter and his extension.
- Everything you were worried about with the Phillies was on display on Wednesday ($).
- This 2021 version of the Phillies, as optimistic as we were about them headed into the season, weren’t built very well.
- Don’t worry, friends, MLB has a plan to fix baseball. Who do they have working on it? Top men. Who? Top. Men.
- Which teams should be making deals at the deadline? Why not ask the people at 538!
- I’m sure you’ve seen the All-Star jerseys that will be worn on the field this year. Such a shame since it’s what has separated MLB from the other games.
- Old friend alert: Vance Worley (!) is headed to the Mets organization after Jerad Eickhoff already did.
