Game 57 Preview: The Phillies Visit for Three Games

by
Greek Giant

I watched the Phillies humiliate the Giants in a four game sweep in the city of brotherly love a few weeks back and let me tell you something: The Phillies are for real.

Last night Aaron Nola bested Clayton Kershaw, who in his return, did no break 91 MPH on his fastball and is headed back to the DL with a back problem. I feel bad for Kerhsaw, but not for the Dodgers.

The Phillies are loaded with young, speedy and powerful players who play impressive defense as well.

It’s Orange Friday! Bum, Panik, Melancon, Pence and maybe Cueto are returning soon so I am feeling optimistic.

Five Questions

  1. How many wins will it take to win the NL West?
  2. Is the stolen base destined to be a forgotten part of baseball?
  3. Who should the Giants draft in the first round of the 2018 draft?
  4. Is Buster playing hurt?
  5. What impact will Mark Melancon’s return have on the pitching staff?
