We’ve previewed players that the Phillies can buy to help shore up their offense, starting pitching and relief pitching. Now, we get into silly season - making up trades!
Do the Phillies believe in Travis Jankowski? Maybe, but it’s doubtful.
Do the Phillies believe in Odubel Herrera? Maybe, but why should they?
There is a weakness in the Phillies’ lineup right now and it’s in centerfield. Whether it’s Jankowski or Herrera, there needs to be more production from the position. The offense has mainly missed out on much of the blame for the Phillies’ losing ways this year, but at some point, there needs to be a spotlight cast on areas they could have improved.
