Listen: Phillies, Baseball, Mets discussed on Joe Giglio
"We played GM tonight and look who's coming off at bat series against the brewers. And they've played lackluster, or just I, I've had a very difficult time this, you're gauging. What Phillies were watching day to day as since therefore, no start? And not that foreign, I'll start was wild because they upped the Braves. Right, outta here that first weekend they go down to DC on that trip by snipers first game back. He hits the home runs. Three hits is the juggernaut and then since then since that night down. The Phillies are twenty and nineteen in thirty nine games and outscored their opponents in those thirty nine games by eight total runs it basically in what amounts to about a quarter of a season since that night in DC. They've played just average. Just run of the mill just blah baseball. Nothing. That makes you say, oh, my goodness, bad and nothing. They say, oh my goodness. They're good. Their longest winning streak is for those I for the longest losers figures three which they've now done again this week. They haven't had any part of their team really stand up and stand out beyond those first four games as well. This is a this is their unit. This is the thing they rely on to win baseball games. We thought it would be the offense and it's had moments that a ten run inning against the Mets. That night were Matt sort of the game here. They've had some, some big innings here there reset a streak here there but the offense hasn't been anything special. The starting pitching has been up and down some guys better than we thought at Flynn, I cough. I'll give colour urban and not what he did on Sunday. Hope it's again tomorrow night, some guy's been way worse than we thought that I'd say Velasquez was fine. And then some good some bad kind of dispense Velazquez Knowle's been way worse than we thought he would be. So that hasn't been anything that you can really hold it on. And the bullpen has been today was bad, but the bullpen has been okay, depending on which reliever gave capital uses the back end of the bullpen that costs ios the Alvarez they stink aggregate. I think it's a little Overmach right now. He just got called up there. Clearly missing the guys that they they're banking on from David Robertson Victor. Oh, Tommy hunter. A lot of this bullpen is not here right now. They expect it, so there's like three guys you could count on. And one of them is there, anything Dominquez is maybe the biggest mystery of this whole team this year you'll get Kappa Colton elite reliever about a year ago when he first arrived, he looked. He looked like he called him last year. At this time. The next kenley Jansen. That's how high was on, sir. Anthony coming into the year. I thought he'd be an all star and he looks nothing like at this year. Get the home run today missing location by foot time. There's not one part of this team. You could grab onto say this is the Phillies the sum of the parts is they're pretty good. And in a division doesn't have anyone else right now? That feels pretty good. They might end up being the best team in the NFL but there's just something off right now. And as we start to look forward to the deadline. I saw today Tim Kirch into the SPN said that they'll get a starter or reliever. They'll add a pitcher before the deadline and as I sit here if I'm Matt clinic and I could only get one thing, it's quite clear. What I'm gonna do. I'm gonna go get a starting pitcher. Because I look at this team and I say there's a bunch of guys that I could use to figure out the bullpen David Robertson might come back from injury hunter my comeback from injury. Arana Mike comeback for injury. I can move up to the bullpen. I can move Alaska's to the bullpen. I could find a way to piece together the bullpen to make something out of nothing. I didn't get Catholics. Good at maneuvers bullpen and getting the most that whoever he."
