Joe Bonsall, a native Philadelphian, is the lead singer for the Oak Ridge Boys. He’s a Phillies fan and posted the following twitter message:
“My Phillies are really struggling. My voice is resting and their bats are resting. The bullpen is wavering as well YIKES!!”
He pretty well sums up the present situation, a 5-game losing streak at home. Last time we lost 5 in a row at Citizens Bank Park: almost to the day a year ago, June 17-18-20-21-22. Red Sox won the first two, Angels, last three.
Perhaps we should petition MLB not to schedule A. L. teams at home in June.
MLB Network will air part two of the series on our bullpen at 9 tonight . . . Network will also carry our game in St. Petersburg on Thursday night.
HAPPY FATHER’S DAY!!
