Is less actually more with the Phillies?



Looking at this picture of Nick Williams going up to bat last night with a generic red batting helmet, had to bring you to the question is less actually more? Who took the 'P' off of Nick's helmet?

The Phillies got back into the win column last night on a soggy, damp, windy, and chilly evening in Philadelphia, as the Phils and the Marlins were able to get game 2 of the series in after mother nature had dumped quite a lot of rain on the area. The grounds crew earned their money on a night like this, but it was good that the game was able to get played.

Bryce Harper launches one into the stands to help the Phils win last night


The Phillies did accomplish this with some bat power. JT Realmuto, Maikel Franco, and Bryce Harper all launched homers to give the Phillies a 4-0 win. With Jean Segura coming back on Saturday, this should help the Phils get back to that winning combination that they had going before the slide started happening. They came into last night's game losing 6 of their last 8 games.

Jake Arrieta is outspoken, I wonder if he would appreciate players criticizing his pitching?

Jake Arrieta (3-2) takes the mound tonight at 6:05 PM vs. (0-3) Trevor Richards - Jake will get the start after he made his comments that the Phillies weren't playing very well. That is a politically correct way of putting the comments that Jake made about his team, he specifically went after Bryce Harper and addressed the way he got thrown out of the game in New York as well. Pitchers usually don't say things like this, we've kind of heard this from Jake as well last year, is that why the Cubs let him sail into free agency?
