The Phillies are 28th in the league in runners left in scoring position per game. Not only can the team not drive in runs, but their pitching staff hasn't been as dominant as expected.
Roy Halladay is on the DL, but even before that he was struggling. Cliff Lee is still winless and has struggled to locate his pitches. The man who used to go games without walking a batter now has put too many runners on base and then has allowed them to score.
The bullpen has been horrendous, ranking 25th in the league in bullpen ERA. The team finally designated Chad Qualls for assignment, but he isn't the only problem in that pen.
