Rebuilding process difficult at the moment for Phillies

If the Cubs and Astros are examples of rebuilding done right, the Philadelphia Phillies are proof that it isn’t so easy.

Philadelphia has dropped 11 of 12 and is on pace to lose 110 games. There’s still time for the Phillies to show some progress in 2017, but after four straight years with at least 89 losses, this is shaping up to be another step back – and a reminder that young players don’t always develop as teams might hope.

The Phillies were swept at home by Arizona this weekend, with two of the three losses by one run.
