Phillies Twitter Person Finally Hits Home run

Note: This was written before the Phils got blown out tonight.   Nate Silver’s FiveThirtyEight – or, as I like to call it, Sports for Nerds (I kid) – has not exactly been bullish on the Phillies, understandably. Their current power rankings, based on the Elo system, which is described as… Thanks to Retrosheet, we’ve collected game results and box scores back to 1871 and...

The Phillies Have Had an Almost Perfect Start

If the season ended today, it would be chaos. There would be significant protestation from players, owners, and fans alike, all parties confused by the suddenly truncated schedule. But if matters were allowed to proceed from there, the National League would have the Mets grab one wild-card slot. The other entry would be determined through a different one-game playoff — that one...

What We Learned About the Phillies in April

The Phillies just wrapped up a 14-10 April which ties the ’01 (14-10) and ’03 (16-12) teams for the Phillies’ second best April record since 2000 and trails only the legendary 2011 squad’s 18-8 run. Baseball may be an extraordinarily long season rich with unpredictable twists and turns, but there is still meaningful information to be gleaned from the start of the 2016 season...

Phillies Stat Notes: May 2nd

They're not a .600 team, but they're better than we thought. The Phillies have the 4th best record in the NL (tied with the Pirates), despite being dead last in scoring runs. NL Standings and Key Stats Comparing the Phillies' surprisingly good record to their somewhat less surprising run differential of -16 is controversial. Saying that they are more like a .420 team...

Are the Phillies for really real?

The Phillies are off to a red-hot start, but will it last? The Phillies started the season with four straight losses. Things were bad. The bullpen blew two late leads in the first two games of the series against the Reds in Cincinnati, after struggling for all of spring training. The offense hadn't gotten in gear, and that 100-loss season many people had predicted before the season...

Phillies baseball is fun again

The 2016 Phillies may still end the year with a losing record, but they have already become fun to watch again. Coming off a second straight three-game sweep of their opponent, the Philadelphia Phillies are riding one of the hottest runs in baseball having won nine of their last 10 games. The Phillies are five games above the .500 mark, and dare we say just 2.5 games out of first...

What’s Going On With Odubel Herrera

This year, Odubel Herrera is an everyday player, and only two players in baseball have drawn more walks. On its own, maybe that doesn’t convey its real significance, so consider that, last year, Odubel Herrera was an everyday player, and 193 players in baseball drew more walks. Herrera today has more than twice as many walks drawn as Joey Votto. Votto last year out-walked Herrera...

Phillies’ outfield is out of this world…bad

The Phillies have a lot of issues. Their bullpen has been both really good and really bad. Their starting pitching started out great, but appears to be coming back to earth.  They have made the habit of making boneheaded base running mistakes. Their offense is putrid. Among all these issues, the most glaring one is possibly their outfield. It’s horrendous. To be fair, it never...
