Now arbitrary scouts are weighing in.
Fox Sports Ken Rosenthal asked three scouts about the Phillies and they did not hold back. One straight-up said "they're awful" while another said they are "painful to watch." Another scout rather abruptly said "they window didn't close slowly -- it shut."
Well, they certainly didn't sugarcoat their feelings. I would like to sit here and list all of the reasons why these scouts are wrong or things they might have missed but I can't. As harsh as their evaluations of the Phillies are, I have not seen anything that would refute them.
