Not A Great Start

The Phillies seem to be picking up where they left off in 2023 with dominant starting pitching, a bullpen that can't throw strikes and gives up the lead, an offense who can't seem to put together a rally and only scores on the longball, and Kyle Schwarber and Nick Castellanos seemingly holding a world's ugliest swing contest.

On the plus side, Alec Bohm's defense continues to improve, and Zack Wheeler is solidifying his reputation as arguably the greatest pitcher that the Phillies have ever brought into the organization as a free agent.  Still, with the improvements made by the Braves, DodgersDiamondbacks, and Giants over the winter, a third consecutive trip to the post-season is far from a sure thing for the Fightins.
