The Philadelphia Phillies finished the 2019 season with an 81-81 record. Even after signing Bryce Harper to a monster $330 million contract, they failed to deliver on high expectations. Despite a dearth of injuries and lack of pitching, the Phils pinned their failures on manager Gabe Kapler, who was fired after the season. Former Yankees manager Joe Girardi steps into the manager role with a proven postseason track record as a player and a coach.
It’s been a while since the Phillies have played postseason baseball. They haven’t had a winning season since 2011 , which is also the last time they made the playoffs.
The Phillies enter MLB’s winter meetings on Dec. 8 with starting pitching at the top of their list. Here’s a look at the Phillies current odds at PA online sportsbooks.
