The Good, The Bad and the Ugly

1 Jul

The Good:  The Phillies are off today.

The Bad:  Yesterday’s game where the Phillies sleep-walked to a 6-1 loss against the Dodgers.

The Ugly:  Where do I start?

The Phillies are now 3-4 on this critical road trip and what makes it really ugly is that they easily could’ve won at least 2, maybe 3 more of those games.

Ryan Howard is mired in a dismal 0-20 slump.  The longest hitless stretch in his career is 23 at bats.

The Phillies are 9 1/2 games behind the Braves and we are more than halfway through the season.  It is NOT still early.

At 39-44 they are a season low five games under .500.

Next stop is Pittsburgh where the Phillies will face the hottest team in baseball, the Pittsburgh Pirates.  Yes, the Pittsburgh Pirates.  They have the best record in baseball at 51-30, yes 51-30 and they’re currently on a nine-game winning streak.  Yes a nine-game win streak.  (Wonder what that feels like?)

Finally, Adding Injury to Insult:  Pitcher Kyle Kendrick suffered a mild concussion Sunday after being hit in the head with a pitch in the sixth inning.

Sorry to be such a downer but ‘rainy days and Mondays always get me down.’

Did I mention that the Phillies are off today???
