The Phillies don’t interest me. It’s like we’re obliged to pay attention to what they’re doing because they play in Philadelphia and they have Bryce Harper and they’re still over .500 and acting like they want to make the playoffs.
They’re going to come up short. It’s been apparent for a while now and when it happens, the season will be looked at disappointingly by the front office and so I have to believe changes will be on the way.
Gabe Kepler may not get another chance. He also may not. If he doesn’t he’ll get another job (perhaps not immediately) and more than likely do well with it. This is a tough first shtick he’s had in Philly.
He would take the fall for the front office’s misgivings. The only way the Phillies will win next year is if they go out and spend even more money. It’s a dangerous strategy because it may not even work. Even if it does, the years afterward could be painful enough to make the fans wonder if the short-term gains were even worth it.
Compare that to the Braves, who were shrewdly torn down and built back up from the bottom a short few years ago. They’re already in championship mode, spending money and trading away future assets to equip the roster with the final pieces it needs for a World Series.
Atlanta will have to beat the Dodgers on the road in the playoffs. That’s it though. The Braves have a comfortable lead over all the rest of the contenders and that makes them the fastest in pursuit.
Offensively, Atlanta can mash with the best of them. If Soroka, and Teheran, and Keuchel, and Fried, and that bullpen can be as good as the other guys (they can), the Braves are going to go.

Free Philadelphia Phillies vs. Atlanta Braves MLB Prediction: Braves.
If I’m going to pay attention to the Phillies, I’m going to fade them. This could be a pitcher’s duel worth watching for the first six innings. Then the Braves blow it open.
