The Phillies haven't been this bad in a while. They are near the bottom of the MLB in a lot of categories in offense. The team returns home to Philly face the Seattle Mariners, who are 67-56 and winners of 8 of their last 10 games.
Phillies ranked by offense of the 30 teams in the MLB:
Batting Average: 26th
On Base Percentage: 26th
Slugging Percentage: 28th
How does the Phillies hitting coach still have a job? Steve Henderson should be asked to pack his belongings into a box and not return. He's like the absent hitting coach at this point, as the Phillies have turned into a cold stone in the offensive runs production department.
It isn't the first year that these bad numbers have existed either, it's a few years now that this team has just folded up and haven't put up any respectable numbers to speak on in the NL East.
This team has notched it's 70th loss in this ugly season for them. Tough to watch this team play like this day after day.
