    Phillies are -21 on run differential….that sucks with this teams starting 8.
    our pitching has been horrible and inconsistent all season and the powers chose not to buy pitching to help the team this season.
    I understand with too few assets to barter well…but the indictment is on management doing nothing in the off-season to secure a Lefty in the 2 or 3 slot.
    Kapler sucks…Pete was better!
    I do love the idea of starting VAL in Left…it shows their desperation and his ability! Hopefully leading to the ouster of Killer K’s…Kapler and Klentak…they both suck!
