The first though that comes to my head whenever I consider the Phillies is: “I don’t know, man.” I just don’t really like this team, as much as the front office has poured into personnel.
The Phils are 11–8 in Pythagorean and in actuality, three weeks into the season. The pitching, especially the bullpen, was stellar for twelve innings on Friday night in Colorado and Bryce Harper doubled in the go-ahead run in extra innings before Charlie Blackmon went deep with two outs in the bottom to win it.
Welcome back to Jerad Eickhoff. Well, he actually debuted on Tuesday against the Mets and pitched well for four innings: three hits, no walks, and six strikeouts. He needed fifty-nine pitches.
Eickhoff was the main piece in the deal that sent Cole Hamels to Texas way back when. He came pitched really well for fifty-one innings in 2015 and had Philly fans psyched for 2016, in which he threw nearly two-hundred innings with an ERA+ of 115.
He struggled a bit in 2017, missed the end of the season and then nearly all of 2018 with numbness in his fingers, no doubt stemming from an elbow.
Five in a row for the Rockies have them back to shouting distance of .500. The offense has picked it up a bit of late but it’s going to be a weakness all season.
Jon Gray lost his first three starts despite pitching well. He finally won his last time out. He’s pitched to a 149 ERA+ with a WHIP just over 1.10. His FIP is nearly a full point higher than his ERA, though, so he’s probably pitched above his real level four starts into 2019.

Free Philadelphia Phillies vs. Colorado Rockies MLB Prediction: over.
Let’s see how Eickhoff bounces back after his first big league start in a while. Meanwhile, the Phils should get a few off of Mr. Gray and I’m hopeful at least one bullpen gets knocked around a bit, especially just two days removed from going twelve.
