SUCKADELPHIA: Phillies Off To Truly Shitastic Start


The Phillies are 3-10 on the season — worst record in the majors, a full game behind a Nationals team that many pundits predicted might challenge baseball’s all-time records for futility. And while Rollins (.305, 6 HR, 11 RBI) has played well… he’s one of very few Phils who can make that claim.

–Defending MVP Ryan Howard has been struggling badly, and now may miss time with a knee injury.

–Starter Brett Myers and his 9.39 ERA have been banished to the bullpen.

–Veteran starter Jon Lieber, the guy everyone thought would be moved for bullpen help now re-joins the rotation.

–And manager Charlie Manuel has taken to making veiled threats at radio talk-show hosts.

    Good times for all involved.

    A slow start isn’t always disastrous… but a start this slow, in a division with a powerhouse favorite in the Mets and young, promising squads in Atlanta and Florida… yikes. One has to wonder if Philly management is already thinking about Manuel’s successor as SI’s John Heyman suggests.
