Phillies 2017 Record: 20-35

The Phils grabbed a couple of wins this week (literally 2 wins) to slow the mudslide that has become of the 2017 season, but they still have a ways to go. They are the worst team in baseball and on a pace for 105 losses. If you are still watching Phillies games anymore, care to look at the leaders after game 48?

NOTES:

Maikel Franco was finally knocked off his perch as the RBI leader. It just goes to show how overrated a stat RBIs can be.

Joseph is the leader in homers, taking the lead from Aaron Altherr, who finally broke a 20-game homer-less streak. Joseph, meanwhile, is having a pretty nice sophomore season.

Boy, is the starting pitching bad. Hellickson leads the starters with a 4.50 ERA - that's scary. It was not a good week for the starters, once again. Lively was good, but no other starter had an ERA under 5 for the week and pitched more than 5.1 innings.

Luis Garcia posted 4 scoreless outings in the past week. I'm not a Garcia guy, but if he somehow can learn to control his scorching fastball, he has the dominant stuff to become a force in this league.

Pat Neshek tossed another 3 scoreless innings this week. If he keeps this up, he will be traded as fast as Mike Schmidt can say Odubel Herrera.

Until next week...
