Well that sucked

MLB: Atlanta Braves at Philadelphia Phillies Bill Streicher-USA TODAY Sports

Starting off that series with Atlanta with a bang, huh?

It still makes sense for the team to be buyers. They aren’t going to sell their best trade pieces and the ones that would get traded wouldn’t make that much of a difference anyway. Going after a weak division would make more sense than squeezing out some teams’ 17th best prospect and hoping he becomes a reliever some day.

If they were to get a few bullpen pieces and/or a starter, they might be able to get close enough to the Mets to make some real noise in the division. It beats watching losing baseball in August and September once again.

On to the links.
