Back by popular demand (well, maybe not that popular) is the Opposition Roadblock series. Last season, I took the idea and highlighted a player from each team that the Phillies would be playing in their upcoming series. Now, we put a new spin on it for 2017.
This season, we thought it would be a new and exciting idea to take a closer look at the team the Phils would be playing. Also, we wanted to continue to highlight an offensive puzzle piece for the home team to figure out. And finally, we are putting one of the opposing pitchers on the stand to see how the Phils will need to approach him to be successful.
We will also be taking a look back after each series to see if my predictions came true, one way or another. Hey, I think it is important to hold myself accountable, ya know?
