Deja Blew

This scene is becoming all too familiar to last year's flimsy performance of the bullpen. It's now two back to back for the Phillies bullpen as they were called into protect a lead and it all fell apart.

The Phillies could be 3-0 right now, that's a stretch for sure but without the bullpen keeping a lead for the Phils, this could be a long season.

Perhaps the relievers are getting this out of them early in the season.

Last night it was Jonathan Papelbon, he isn't going to save every game, but he did have some help with a bad play from Cody Asche.

After a very promising start, the Phils have to regroup and get in a winning frame of mind, the head to Chicago to visit the Cubs for the only time of the season they will be at Wrigley which is 100 years old this year, hopefully they can regain their winning ways.

  1. What was the bad play from Cody Asche? Papelbon did give up a single thanks to a drawn in infield but the soft grounder to third did not seem to be misplayed. Seems to me the blown save was on Papelbon thanks to elevated pitches and general lack of command.
