Magic? There’s some of that. But winning is winning. Since an 0-4 start, the Phils are 24-13. Since April 20, they’re 18-8.
They’re making every run count. They’re scored fewer than five runs in 20 of their last 22 games, but they’ve gone 15-7.
There’s something so cool about watching a bunch of kids win when almost no one outside of their own clubhouse thinks they’ve got a chance. It’s a reminder that teams who turn their roster over to young players have no idea what will happen.
