Another day another cancellation for the Phillies. At least this time it wasn’t because the Marlins organization is a bunch of assholes but still it’s annoying. Hurricane Isaias forced them to cancel their game and make it up with a double header tomorrow in the Bronx. I bet things are just hunky-dory for everyone else but for Phillies fans baseball stinks right now. They have only played four games at this point. And to make it worse they are 1-3. They inexplicably can’t beat the Marlins who are literally crawling with COVID-19. And after not being able to play they run into the hottest team in baseball. Did I mention baseball stinks?
I had such high hopes for this season. I thought the short schedule was just what this team needed. Sports were back and everything was great. But life sure has a way of kicking you in the nuts doesn’t it? And for the love of God nobody read the article I wrote about them winning the World Series. Don’t even think about looking back at this and mocking me for this take. I would be furious if you read my content.
To be fair, I am not sure you can blame all of the Phillies struggles on their circumstances. McCutchen is as rusty as you would expect after having over a year off from baseball. Not something you like to see from your leadoff man. Their starting pitching and bullpen are suspect at best. Not to mention that their hitting is sporadic. Didi looks good but you can’t quite count on anyone else right now besides Phil Gosselin. Yup you read that right. Another disappointing season but what else is new. Make this season worth it and at least extend J.T. Realmuto. Please. For the love of God please.
