It's Clobberin' Time

One of my favorite Marvel catchphrases was by The Fantastic Four's Thing when he used to say "It's Clobberin Time".
Being said by a giant orange rock guy, you could tell you would be in for some pain.
The Phillies put up a crooked number against the Chicago Cubs yesterday in their attempts to get back in the division race.  They currently sit 4.5 games out of first with the Mets, Braves, and Nationals all playing for the division title.  

The Phillies offense hasn't been the problem for the past few years, it's been historically one of the worse bullpens ever assembled that has kept Philadelphia from making the postseason.  With a majors worse 20 blown saves on the 82 game season thus far, getting to the 9th inning while preserving a lead has been a VERY difficult task for the Phillies.  Hopefully the management team can put together some trades to translate into some more team wins and get the Phillies into the postseason this year.  

When healthy the offense can straight up mash the baseball.

Topps Now released a card earlier this season that celebrated the Phillies 7 HRs in one game which tied a franchise record.
Andrew McCutchen, Rhys Hoskins, and Matt Joyce were all pictured on the front of the card.

The back featured a writeup about the team's 17-3 victory over the Reds and how Cutch hit two homers along with Odubel Herrera.
Do you think the Phillies front office will make a big splash at the deadline to improve the bullpen and will the Phillies make the Postseason this year? 


  1. I thunk Phils will go for it. Will they make the Postseason...who knows?

  2. Sorry I'm not able to provide any feedback... but I don't even keep up with the A's or Padres front office moves.
