Bullpen Blues

New Phillies podcast, “Bullpen Blues”.

Seemingly against all odds, the Philadelphia Phillies are currently tied up two apiece with the Miami Marlins during their grueling seven games series. The team has already seen their fair share of bullpen collapses (multiple if I may add), and the Marlins have battled hard, respectfully.

This seven game gauntlet was beyond crucial, for both teams. The Phillies are still just 2.5 games behind the Braves for first place in the NL East, while the Marlins are doing their very best to rob the Phils of a potential playoff spot. With the newly introduced MLB postseason format, that second place spot in the NL East is far more important this season compared to previous years.

With that said, the Phillies exploded onto the scene Saturday night to even things up at 2-2. Rookie RHP Spencer Howard was solid through his first few innings, Didi Gregorius hit a grand slam, Bryce Harper broke out of his slump with a three-hit night, and the Phillies bullpen miraculously didn’t self-implode.

To talk through all of this chaos, while also taking a glance ahead at the team’s monumental showdown with former prospect Sixto Sanchez, is Philly Sport Network’s newest podcast, Bullpen Blues: A Philadelphia Phillies Podcast. The podcast is hosted by current PSN 76ers lead writer David Esser, and new PSN family member Kevin Dickson. Both David and Kevin have a plethora of experience covering the Phillies for Fansided.com.

Make sure to go give the debut episode a listen, while also subscribing/following to PSN Radio on your streaming platform of choice. PSN radio has a wide variety of shows to listen to, with all of the Philadelphia sports teams represented alongside the Phillies.
