They may still even get to 90 wins in this bad division, but no chance at winning the LCS unless five or six of the streakers all decide to hit at the same time and they score 7+ runs every game.
Nola not an ace?? Guy finished 3rd in the Cy Young vote, exactly how many aces do you see in the NL??

I'm admittedly spoiled by Phils rotations early this decade, but nobody on this staff is lights out, and we all know it.

What's up with Eickhoff?

He has surrendered a total of one earned run over his last three starts.

Strongly disagree - Nola was 17-6 2.37ERA, WHIP under 1, 58 walks, 224 K's in 212 IP.

Sure, that's one good year. If that or close to it becomes his norm, then I'll call him a stud. Right now his ERA is double that.

Nice to see the Phils come back strong two days in a row after laying a giant egg Monday.

Weekend series in KC coming up. Phils should take at least 2 out of 3... so they’ll probably get swept.

Harper is slumping badly. He deserves it. He said so.

As long as they stay comfortably in first, nobody cares.

I'm sure somebody writing the salary checks cares. Harper is streaky. Nothing new.

Doesn't matter if they care. He's under contract for 13 seasons. Just stay in first. That's all that matters.

Brewers make the Phillies their bitches, taking 3 of 4, and beating them 11-3 today.

Nope I love watching Harper fail. Nationals or Phillies hes overrated. You guys should be 15 games up with the incredible shitty managing and pitching Atlanta has. You wont even win the division, but keep propping up BHack

The Brewers and Steroid Ryan Braun have owned the Phils for years.

The still-undefeated-despite-nearly-5-ERA Aaron Nola starts today! :thumb:

I feel confident. :lol:

Nola finally whittling that ERA down a little, even with a really high pitch count early.

And then there was this:

Phils are keeping me fed lately. Got my CFA sammy for yesterday's save. I hope the save today is applied to Monday since those Jesus freaks close on Sunday.

Dominguez blows (lead in 7th)

Phils tie in the 9th on 2-out hit by Segura and win in 10th on Realmuto HR. :thumb:

Not a bad way to start road trip. Hamels starts against his old team on Wednesday.
