    Can we just call it quits for the season? I have been a Phillies fan for 57 years. I have watched some bad teams over that time. But, this bullpen has to be the worst. It is sad to say, but once the starter comes out, you kind of know you are going to lose. I know Joe Giraldi has limited options, but I would just lock Workman in a room at this point. He should not be allowed to come into a game again this year. I would be curious to see how many more wins this team would have if the bullpen did their job. It makes me wonder if players like JT and Didi really want to come back here knowing the frustration they had to endure this year. And how about Wheeler? How many wins did he forfeit? I know money tops all, but this guys are competitive and want to win. Sorry to be so long winded.

      24 wins out of 41 games with a blown lead (usually 2 or more runs) by the ‘pen. Yes, even Nola and Wheeler and the starters blow leads. But in the other 17 games they lost, most were due to the bullpen.
