It just gets worse and worse, folks.
The Phillies follow a 4-7 homestand with a 1-5 road trip, and put themselves 11 games below .500.
This team is about as close to unwatchable as you can get, and we just finished the first week in June. The way things are going, its scary to think about what this group will look like after the trade deadline.
We knew this team was bad going into the year, but we didn’t expect them to be a contender for the worst record in the majors, and the way things are going they’re almost certainly going to be one of the top candidates for that illustrious distinction.
