Take Five...As In Days

One week into the season and we know even less about these Phillies than we did when they broke camp and headed north.

The starting pitching is even more suspect than anyone imagined, especially with Cole Hamels sporting an ERA north of ten.

The middle relief is in near-complete disarray.

The defense is lousy.

One pitch separated the Phils from being swept by Kansas City at home.

The Phils took 4-0 leads in two of their weekend games against the Royals...and lost both of them.

Chase Utley is healthy and hitting.  Ryan Howard is healthy and is not hitting.

After one week this observer finds the Phillies astonishingly boring to watch.  Barring any important developments, I already need time off.
