The Phillies have started the season slowly. I’ve heard theories that they are suffering from a championship hangover. I don’t buy it. The Phillies are a notoriously slow starting team. The championship festivities (raising the flag, getting the rings) might have been a bit distracting, but I do not think they are to blame for the stumble out of the gates.
It’s not time to panic. Soon we’ll see quality starts from our rotation again, the offense will begin to click, and things will be back to normal.
I suppose if they are suffering a championship hangover there’s nothing like the hair of the dog to remedy it.
