The Phillies have given up, finally

Back in February, before the 2015 MLB season started, I wrote that the projected-to-be-terrible Philadelphia Phillies should just give up and put themselves out to pasture. They did not immediately heed my advice. Nearly four months later, the team found itself with a 22-44 record, the worst in all of baseball. Cue the terminal sequence: Losing 18-3 in the eighth inning of a game in Baltimore, sub-replacement-level right-fielder Jeff Francoeur is pitching, the bases are loaded, and there’s no such thing as hope for the Phillies, who finally waived the white flag. No souls were saved.
