Memorial Day(ish) Assessment of the Phillies

Nothing shocking to say here.

The Phillies should end up the season somewhere around .500. A team that cannot put a sustained winning streak together will not get into the playoffs.

They also have to jump four teams to make the playoffs. Two of which are the Braves and the Marlins. Not happening.

You want the Phillies to be either in the playoff hunt legitimately or our of it by the trade deadline. You need to know whether you are buying or selling.

Unless they go on a 15-game winning streak sometime soon, I would plan on selling.

It would literally take an absolute miracle for the Phillies to be in contention this year. Sad to say, but I hope they sell off several players and start rebuilding. It's become painfully obvious we can't win with this lineup. It's a good thing I'm not emotionally caught up with the Phillies this year..Chris
