Phillies sliding into summer

Today marks the first day of summer, which used to be considered hitting season for the Philadelphia Phillies. Not so much anymore.

Will the Phillies lose 100 games in 2016?

Do not take this as a negative post for the sake of being negative about the 2016 Philadelphia Phillies. By most accounts, this is expected to be a long summer when it comes to wins and losses, with the wins likely to be few and far between for this young group of Phillies looking to […]
