Newsflash: The Phillies are awful
A lot of sportswriters were luvin' the Phillies heading into the season, and now they're jumping off the bandwagon like it was on fire. The despair in Philly may have reached rock bottom on Wednesday night when the Phillies dropped one to the
Triple-A Washington Nationals in extra innings. That loss kept them at the bottom of the NL and combined with the Royals win it officially made the Phillies the worst team in baseball. Ryan Howard, who went 0-5 with two Ks, seems to have decided to save his MLB required sophomore slump for his third season. He also may be wishing that he had signed for more than $900K this offseason, seeing as he can't hit anything right now.
