Another off day? Then a 2-game series and another off-day on Thursday?

That’s good. We can use our ace Corbin sooner.

This presents a dilemma...watch Marchand scurry about the ice licking people or sweep up pollen.  Hard call.

I just watch the pregame press conference with Davey; he has huge guns. I never noticed it before.

Maybe better than a Nats game this season: watch Fred-burg, listen to Wilmington. (Haven't seen Wilmington on MiLB.TV...)

Wilmington was on last night and should be on rest of the week. They are in Brooklyn.

An interesting game of Wilmington at Brooklyn Cyclone (Mets A+). One out in the bottom of the 5th, Cyclones get their first base-runner. Andry Lara pitching. Blue Rocks lead 1 - 0 after Woods drives in Barley with a ground-out.

https://www.baseball-reference.com/teams/PHI/2023-pitching.shtml
For the starters every one has a FIP better than the ERA.  So regression is a coming. Probably for Trea also. Wheeler and Nola have been dependable over the years. Walker is not great but probably better than an almost 6.00 ERA. Ranger is just back. And Schwarber will soon realize it’s June.

In the NL they along with the Mets and Padres and Cards have all dug themselves a hole. However the Pirates and Marlins are not likely to stay in contention.  So they all have a decent spot at a wild card.

I think last year the Phillies were 21-29 when they fired Joe. So they are in better shape this year even with a bad start.

Better than an off day? An off day after a win. Even better? An off day after a win that takes a series.

Bad thing about Monday day off is no minor league games. At least we have hockey.

Exactly that.

Still, it is a pleasure to have an off-day after a win.

a little bit of both. Laxative 3 days out, 64oz of miralax plus laxatives the night before and a liquid diet the day before. Just a routine every-ten-year screen, but still better than discovering stage-4 colon cancer. :)
