Final Thoughts

Oh look, another shutout.

Once again, the putrid lineup assembled by Ruben Amaro Jr. wasn’t interested in playing baseball.

The Phils are now a season-worst 12 games below .500, and continue to show just how bad they really are as they sink further and further into the basement of one of the worst divisions in baseball. on Facebook

  1. “The Phils are now a season-worst 12 games below .500, and continue to show just how bad they really are as they sink further and further into the basement of one of the worst divisions in baseball.”

    While this is true I think it should also be noted that we are tied with Houston for the 2nd worst record in the majors and only 1 game up on the worst record (dbacks).


  2. Just remember amaro scapegoated charlie last year, this year it’s either Sandberg or amaro falls on his own axe

    The team plays more listless than it ever did for charlie, bowa must be ready to explode

    • Bowa won’t make it to September, His Heart will explode..
      This Team is just way too laid back with their Veterans just too set in their Ways to try changing their approach’s to the game

      Problem is that they have 5-6 Players who are still productive and have Value around the MLB (Utley,Rollins,Byrd,Papelbon,Lee,Burnett,Howard) but they all have bad Contracts that other Teams are not going to take on fully so the Phils would hav eto eat some $$$ and probably take lower Rated Prospects in Return for Teams are not going to take on big Contracts and Trade their Top Prospects too… Utley is not bad at $15 Million but
      Byrd is Due like $32 Million over thru 2016 Season, Papelbon earns $13 Million per Season and has 2 Years Left on his Deal
      Lee Earns $22 Million Per Year and has 3 more Years left
      Howard Earns $25 Per Year with 3 more Years Left

      I can see a couple of Playoff Contending Teams that looking for another Bat, or Pitcher or Closer who is willing to eat some $$$ for a Year or 2 to make a Playoff Run, but they are surely not going to eat big $$$ for 2-3 Years worth plus Send their Top Prospects in Return ..

      Basically, the Phil’s will have to give some of these Players away and eat a chunk of their Contracts Back and get mediocre Prospects just to start clearing some Payroll for Future Season, there are really in a no Win Situation

      There are in a no win Situation… Cole Hamels is still relatively Young and would return Top Prospects, not sure you want to Trade all your players and need to keep some around..

      • utley is their major trade chip and im sure the reuben wont move him. although with nothing more than warning track power his value goes down by the day. GET CHASE SOME JUICE!!!!!

        • Utley & Hamels would return them the most as far as Prospects go,
          but chances are they both remain with the Phils
