Two things can be true at the same time.
First, Keith Hernandez was possibly channeling deep rooted dislike of the team when he made his comments about the Phillies last week. He probably hasn’t watched much of the team lately and was going off of the preseason narrative of the bad fielding out of Philadelphia.
Second, the Phillies have been playing good baseball lately, led by some fundamental improvements since Rob Thomson. Had you not been watching the team with any kind of regularity, you might have missed it as well.
Regardless, we can all enjoy watching the Phillies play good ball right now, showing our appreciation by wearing the newest collection from BreakingT.
It’s a great shirt, particularly if you can wear it to Citizens Bank Park next weekend.
