30. Philadelphia Phillies (29-62) Last 10: 2-8 

Everybody that follows baseball knows that this was going to be a tough rebuilding year for the Phillies. General Manager Ruben Amaro Jr indicated that much during the Winter Meetings last December. However, I’m not sure if anybody expected them to pile up losses at the current pace their on. Philly is currently on a 5 game losing streak and their 2-8 in their last 10 games. The current streak is their 5th this season of 5 games or more. Expect Cole Hammels to be traded soon despite his last start against the Giants. Mikael Franco might be the Phillies one bright spot. He is a player that the franchise can build around going forward.
