Will the Phillies Lose 100 Games This Season?
At least the Philadelphia Phillies avoided 100 losses last season.
The team finished at 63-99 and was the worst team in the major leagues by one measly game over the Cincinnati Reds who finished at 64-98.
So one season later, the Phillies are still projected to finish as one of the worst teams in baseball. But will they reach the point of 100 losses?
Various outlets have picked the Phillies to be the worst team in major league baseball, as they should avoid 100 losses for the second consecutive season. Although USA Today projects the Phillies to lose 101 games and finish with a lousy 61-101 record.
Atlantis Race and Sports Book gave the Phillies an over/under win total of 66.5 which would have them avoiding 100 games, also. The odds maker tabs the Atlanta Braves as the worst team in baseball reaching that 100 losses mark.
It's clear that the Phillies are in rebuilding mode for the next few seasons and the most important thing is having their younger, inexperienced players gain that experience under a new regime with Matt Klentak and Andy MacPhail in charge.
