At .240 and .301 the Phillies have the second-lowest batting average and on-base percentage in all of baseball. Their team cumulative OPS is the worst in the game.
Defensively, the Phillies .983 fielding percentage is 20th in the game, as is their total of 96 errors. These represent improvements over 2015, but still are reflective of unacceptable levels of play.
Mackanin gets points for his postgame pressers. He is very straightforward, and seems to have a realistic grasp on the situation. He just seems to lack any answers, which is maddening.
