Phillies 2016 Record: 60-75

It's not getting prettier for the Fightins lately. The offense mustered just 10 hits in the entire three-game Washington series to show just how ugly the hitting has been at times.

How bad is the offense? It's really bad. This from Todd Zolecki:

They entered Saturday last in Major League Baseball in runs per game (3.70) and on-base percentage (.296). The Phillies are on pace to have their lowest runs-per-game average since 1988 (3.69) and their lowest on-base percentage since 1968 (.294).

Now that Vince Velasquez has been shut down for the season, it could bea scary final month. With the aftorementioned offense combined with a bullpen with a 4.48 ERA for the season and a rotation that will feature Adam Morgan and two schlubs from the minors on a regular basis, Pete Mackanin is going to have to do some serious managing to avoid a September disaster.

Anyway, here we are through 135 games:
