HERE’S HOW PHILS’ PLAYOFF CHANCES ARE HELPED WITH MANNY M!

So says ESPN:

PHILLIES Current win forecast: 86.2 (Change from June: +0.3) Current playoff probability: 44.4% (Up 3.8%) Current championship probability: 0.4%

Manny Bump: 0.44% title probability | 3.8 wins (fourth)

The Phillies get a huge win bump from Machado. There’s some roster-wide regression — crucial for the calculation on true talent level — which contributes to that. However, Philly has definitely underperformed on the left side of the infield. Most of the players there are young — Maikel Franco, J.P. Crawford,Scott Kingery — so you don’t know when, or if, they might put it together. It really depends on just how much prospect inventory the Phillies are willing to move for a rental player they might be able to sign after the season anyway:
