Going to Cincinnati for one game, is this a series? Is it still a continuation of the series from before? It’s all so confusing.
After a sterling performance from their ace, the Phillies will try and get something similar out of Spencer Howard. You have to wonder what will happen if Howard is only able to go a few innings tonight. Will his future in 2021 still be in the rotation? With all of the struggles the team has had trying to find a closer, you have to wonder if the team might consider putting Howard at the end of games. They’ve already come close to screwing him up like Joba Chamberlain with all the bouncing around of roles; might as well just finish the job.
