This is a series where the Phillies can flex some muscle and get some wins. I am not buying the early success of the Giants this season.
San Francisco Giants
I do believe that the Giants will be one of the worst hitting teams in the Majors this season. I do not believe they will be one of the best pitching teams in the Majors this season. That regression will fuel their demise.
Kevin Gausman has found something with the Giants. They took a big risk with his contract this offseason and so far it has really paid off. I am buying it for now. It is most of the rest of the pitchers I am worried about.
Closer Jake McGee has pitched a lot already and is off his first bad outing of the season. If the bullpen is not sharp the Giants are going to really be sunk.
No team has gotten off to a particularly hot start in the NL East this season. As a result I am even more confident that Philadelphia can be a player in the division this season. Right now they are missing a couple of key arms in the bullpen.
Chase Anderson is the fifth starter. He has made just 2 starts this season, both against the Mets. He has been fair but this will be a lineup that is a little easier to navigate.
The bullpen is better than a year ago and will be even better still once they get Archie Bradley healthy. They just need to be able to make sure they don’t squander any games where Aaron Nola or Zach Wheeler start and pitch well.

Free San Francisco Giants vs. Philadelphia Phillies MLB Prediction:
Gausman is the better pitcher for sure but I am worried the Phillies are just going to wait out the Giants. I can see this one being 3-1 San Francisco in the 5th and finishing 6-3 for the Phillies. I like their offense to eventually break through.

The over looks pretty good too. The Phily offense has been underperforming but I think they start to heat up this week.
