MLB Handicapping: Philadelphia knows it's been ultra-lucky this season

05.16.2016     08:30 AM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
The Philadelphia Phillies are starting to get it. Their "hot" start has been well documented as they currently own the seventh-best record (22-16) in MLB. How the Phils got there is simple -- and unsustainable -- with a bunch of 1-run (14-3) and extra inning (4-0) victories. The organization though is well aware of this but refuses to deviate from the original game plan of a total rebuild. In terms of "luck", Philadelphia has won seven more games than it should have based on the team's -30 run differential.

"We're not blind to the fact that our run differential is negative by a significant margin," Klentak said. "We're well aware that there has been a lack of offensive production throughout much of the lineup."
