Phillies belong in the basement right now

Last place is the last place you want to be even in the middle of April.

But that's where the Phillies stand in the National League East, a division they have dominated for the last five seasons.

They begin a four-game series Thursday night in San Diego in last place and it is the exact place they deserve to be right now.

They have played four series and lost three of them.

They lost two out of three to the Pittsburgh Pirates, a team that is last in baseball in runs scored.

They lost two out of three at home to the New York Mets, the team that just about everybody believes will finish last in N.L. East.

They lost two out of three to the San Francisco Giants even though they had a starting pitcher provide them with 10 scoreless innings Wednesday night at AT&T Park.

Those are the kinds of efforts that anchor a team at the bottom of a division.

Philadelphia Phillies: Giving Ruben Amaro a Failing Grade for the Offseason

By Mark Swindell (Contributor) on April 19, 2012

It's April 19, it's early. The Philadelphia Phillies are 5-7 and 4.5 games behind the first-place Washington Nationals. The offense has been pathetic the majority of the time, while the starting rotation has not won a game if the Phils give up more than two runs.

In the San Francisco series that just wrapped up, the Phillies scored four runs in the first inning of the first game. They only scored three runs in the next 28 innings.

So how did we get here? First off, we all knew Ryan Howard blew out his Achilles last season and that he would miss the first couple months of the season. Next, Chase Utley's chronic knee issues flared up again and the timetable for his return is still unknown.

Manuel had to let Lee pitch ten innings the other night because he has no bullpen.

Now he has no Lee.

Maybe the clowns from up there will be too embarrassed to invade our ballpark.
