MLB: Los Angeles Dodgers at Philadelphia Phillies Kyle Ross-USA TODAY Sports

Not sure what else we expected from that Dodgers series. They are clearly a superior team up and down the roster and the fact that the Phillies won one game and were robbed of a chance to win another shows they can at least hang with them. They are still not going to be favorites anytime they face a team like the Dodgers or Giants, but there is no reason they cannot at least put up a fight against them.

Now they get to face the Reds, a team more on their talent level. They didn’t play all that well in Cincinnati outside of one offensive explosion, but this team feels different now. They also get to play them at home, where they have played much, much better this season. It’s a series they must win before they head to the west coast.

On to the links.
