Points by Ben Simmons during Game 3 victory over Nets

After his game-winning hit Sunday against the Mets, Ryan Howard said the Phillies are headed in the right direction, but Eric Fisher says if The Big Piece is correct, it’s only because they’re so bad that they have nowhere to go except up. Eric also reviews Charlie Manuel’s induction into the Phillies Wall of Fame, questions why older players are starting late in the season and wonders if a Phillies pitcher will win 10 games.

Darren Daulton will be missed at Alumni Weekend, but his presence certainly will be felt at Citizens Bank Park. Eric Fisher also examines Cesar Hernandez’s hot streak, Luis Garcia’s recent troubles and the disparity between the Phillies and the Dodgers.

Matt Rhule follows the path of other successful Temple coaches by leaving the Owls for greener pastures at higher-profile programs. Rhule, with double-digit wins in back-to-back seasons, is the new coach at Baylor.
