The defender of the World Series entered the Citizens Bank Park on Tuesday night. As they felt the diamond curls in the field, it was different from the last time they visited. The grass was dry and the dirt was untidy. Thoughts were running through the brains of the brave. ‘How do they play on this field? ” ‘Wow, their main crew made a bad turn. “Can’t they take better care?” After thinking for hours, it hit them. Citizens Bank Park World Series, lacked the playoff magic.
Yes, indeed, the Phillies are devoid of the magic of the players who pile on top of each other on top of the cubes after celebrating the final, while celebrating wildly in the stadium. Philadelphia fans have been waiting, waiting, and you guessed it, waiting. When Bryce Harper signed, fans thought they would soon have fun on Broad Street.
The reality is that it’s 2022 and Broad Street feels more distant than ever, as Phillies has twice lost the MVP due to a broken thumb. Playoff hopes were crushed; or are they?
About a year ago, the Atlanta Braves were in a similar situation. On July 10, 2021, young star Ronald Acuña Jr. Jazz tore the ACL in an attempt to play against the warning track outside of Chisholm’s bat. His injury took him for the rest of the season.
Little did they know that three months later, the Brave would win the World Series without the help of Acuna. Personally, I believe that Acuna’s injury was a disguised blessing, as it led to unity between the team to work together on and off the field, and they put themselves in the best fight to win the title.
Bryce Harper may not be in the season, but his absence is in the most important part, the second part. His return schedule is not yet known, although reports suggest he will continue to recover 6-8 weeks. Phillies beat the writer Matt Gelb“If Harper hits that schedule, about 35 games (will be missed), about 50 games will be missed. ”
The main thing is that Harper is irreplaceable and the team has no excuses. as noted in last week’s article, “Harper’s strong energy and great experience can definitely affect the team’s speed, but bats should not calm down without it. Their ranks are full of talented strikers with figures to prove it.
Now is the time for veterans on the team, especially JT Realmuto, Nick Castellanos, Kyle Schwarber and Rhys Hoskins. DOWNLOAD IT. As we have seen this season, young players can do it. However, veterans need to reach the base consistently, run, and lay the foundation for the rest of the team’s success. Strong foundations are important to reach the full potential of the team.
So how can the Brave Warrior give magic to Phil? On the field, Phillies should learn from his mistakes in this series and observe how Braves does his job.
Metaphorically speaking, Phillies must steal the sparkle of the Brave. Sprinkle it on the field, bats, gloves, clubhouse and Citizens Bank Park stands. The brave took their turn with the title, now is the time to focus on their hungry rivals. Maybe the upcoming Xfinity shows fireworks Citizens Bank Park will leave a sparkle. Shhhh, don’t tell the judges, we don’t want a new “sparkle” lawsuit in Philadelphia.
