I just can't fucking believe this team


SuckMyLonzoBalls

Phillies fans right now thinking about JT https://www.nbcsports.com/sites/rsnunited/files/archive/assets_article/philadelphia/2020/04/30/jt.gif

That’s one of my favorite breakdowns. So funny

Thank you! (:

Don’t worry Muncy got y’all the dub


Lonelan

MAX MUNCY THAT FUNKY MUNCY


themiamimarlins

Can I ask why there are so many empty seats for a Sunday game this early in the season


blanketbread

It's brutally hot. The team is not.


the_bhan

It’s like 100 and humid outside here it’s disgusting


[deleted]

The city cares less about Phillies than every other team. It's a little hot but all other sports towns wouldn't be this dead because of 90 degrees partly cloudy.


NeurosciGuy15

Todays attendance was 34,000. You’re being dramatic.


[deleted]

And a ton of no shows.


zbend1

Because it’s super hot outside and humid and it’s a day game.


NeurosciGuy15

Nah man, Philadelphians hate the heat. More so than “any other sports town”.


tyler-86

Well, where are they supposed to put their batteries when it's warm out? I kid.


[deleted]

Exactly! Now I live in philly and they can't handle a little sun. If the team was legit there would be more fans. The 76ers game was hot and they left early.


fleejol33

Terrible comment lol. Philly loves the Phillies people just aren’t ready to sit outside in 90 degree heat and humidity with the sun beating down on them for 3 hours yet


[deleted]

But that doesn't refute anything I said. They are the 4th popular team here. They kinda suck so people won't stick through bad conditions to watch em.


HoskinsDadBodGod

Flyers attendance is way lower than ours


[deleted]

Wow! Good analysis! I wonder, are baseball stadiums about the same size as other sports??


HoskinsDadBodGod

No they are not. But if the flyers were more popular, surely they’d sell out this smaller stadium every game?


MayorSmore

The Flyers, Union and Sixers are not more popular than the Phillies


fleejol33

Your Chicago education is showing


[deleted]

I wasn't educated in Chicago...but imagine thinking philadelphia is better.


Killatrap

idk man the philadelphia museum of art is S++++++ tier


[deleted]

Barnes >


AZsportsmisery

Lmao shut up it gets to like 85 degrees outside and everyone in Chicago thinks they’re standing on the sun. Y’all don’t know what hot actually is.


Pizanch

We love our mediocre team you bozo


ehbacon23

34,000 was the attendance today, which is honestly a really good crowd for an 18-22 team who hasn't made the playoffs in over a decade. It was just super hot, also the noon game meant not much shade, so a lot of people couldn't stay the whole game.


HoskinsDadBodGod

We’ve given up


Blackcat008

/r/agedlikemilk


HoskinsDadBodGod

Just cause I’ve given up doesn’t mean they won’t try to reel me back in.


Lonelan

that's how they came up with that P logo anyway here I am on a beeline with the team, nope out to the left, wait something cool happened I'm come back aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaand well now we're behind again


OsmosisJonesFanClub

Max Muncy shows some brotherly love


reliabletinman

Aaaand phils won


Some_Asian_Kid99

Well tbh it’s more that the Dodgers lost 😢


reliabletinman

I’ll take it


spilled_water

Yea we definitely know what that's like.


IncreaseMountain2098

I guess not lol


allgreen754

Muncy has Phillies Ml


AssassinPanda97

We suck


IseeDrunkPeople

When did you guys trade places with the Mets?


MarcBulldog88

Baseball IQ is the sexiest stat in the game.


SuckMyLonzoBalls

Remember when JT kept to tag the Braves player out two years ago. One of his all time moves


ATLjoe93

Our world-famous postseason baserunning. Causing confusion worldwide since 1991.


Whitsoxrule

And it made for a great [photo](https://images2.minutemediacdn.com/image/fetch/w_736,h_485,c_fill,g_auto,f_auto/https%3A%2F%2Fdodgersway.com%2Fwp-content%2Fuploads%2Fgetty-images%2F2020%2F10%2F1280983442-850x560.jpeg). One of my favorite defensive plays I watched live


TreaTurner

I have that on a tshirt


SuckMyLonzoBalls

I need that


Casual_Luchador

I’m convinced that play won us the World Series. We felt down and out before that.


tyler-86

Considering the situation, it's definitely up there for the most important play of the postseason.


usetheforce_gaming

I choose to believe Freddie threw the ball high on purpose.


LocalSlob

5d chess just to lose in extras

The fabled 6th d


UBKUBK

And that the SS foresaw this happening so his poor decision was actually genius.


Laney20

Probably juat excited to get to throw it. He doesn't often get to show off his arm.


jjaytan

God this is such a good play


Frankocean2

Gives this man the OSCAR


jesteronly

Well, now THAT'S a TOOTBLAN


BaltimoreBadger23

The third base coach's face and posture will now be in the dictionary to illustrate "disappointment".


fuetirado

Justin Turner: >Surprise motherfucker


JanitorOfSanDiego

Gotta listen to the third base coach smh


BaltimoreBadger23

Yup, he wasn't fooled in the least. If grabbing the runner were legal, he'd have done that.

[this play ?](https://youtu.be/FbZXFt_ef5U)


mojowo11

"Ran in front of the runner and physically stopped him from getting thrown out at home" is such a laughable exaggeration of what happened here. Fandom is a hell of a drug.


tyler-86

It is an exaggeration but it's still probably supposed to be an out, by the letter of the rule. That said, it should also have technically been an out when Big Mac hit #62 and the first base coach nudged him back to first base. I'm certainly more interested in the spirit of the rule, by which both plays were called correctly.


slutforcompassion

that’s just the human brain really. things get altered in our memory every time we recall them.


HanselRoblesEnjoyer

I mean is it really though? Not sure what I expected going into this, but he physically stood in the baseline so the runner would run into him and stop. Definitely shouldn’t be allowed.


BaltimoreBadger23

Yeah, total misrepresentation of the actual play now that I've seen it.


BaltimoreBadger23

I assume the runner was called out.


[deleted]

[удалено]


BaltimoreBadger23

Oof blown call unless there was no actual contact and the coach stayed in foul territory. Edit: having seen the video, it's an obviously not blown call. Runner ran into the coach, coach did not initiate contact, no out.


[deleted]

[удалено]


Grimmbeard

Wasn't Wotus


tyler-86

Well it takes a second to process what's happening. The third base coach probably wasn't expecting him to take off when JT had already tried to tag him, so the coach has to react, then the runner has to react to the coach, and that all takes time.


ThePelicanWalksAgain

The 3rd base coach is firmly pointing at the base (telling Realmuto to stay) as soon as Turner catches the ball


tyler-86

I'm sure he told JT to stay initially, but maybe JT was confused about whether that still was the case when he thought the ball got away. Then he popped up to go, coach had to tell him again to stay, and before he could react to that and get back to the bag, Turner had the tag down.

Phillies season in a nutshell


HoskinsDadBodGod

And now we just won, I don’t understand this


Gentlem8s

.500 ball lives on


Chief_JD

This is high school shit. Embarrassing


Halos-117

So was the play at 2B lol it evens out I guess


Lebigmacca

That was little league shit


NegativesPositives

Justin Turner was the only human on that field who knew what he was doing.

Inspiration_Bear

He’s talking about how embarrassing it is that Realmuto fell for it, not that Turner tried it. Chill out dude.


LordOfWinsAbvRplcmnt

Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhh Got it lmfao


Beastage

For fans of this play, here's Manny Machado: **https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fGdTKPZxmA8**


awfulcontact

Greatest play I've ever seen. It was so hype at the time.


TooHappyFappy

https://youtu.be/32BSSvmtsFQ Another fake throw the Rays fall for, this one in the World Series


I_CAN_SMELL_U

Realmuto having a tough season lol


LAJK3

Torn between heads up for the play by JT, or it being a heads down play for the play by JT


thugmuffin22

Can’t go anywhere as a baserunner if you don’t know where the ball is, or at the very least without seeing if your third base coach knows where the ball is


WhenPigsRideCars

WHO CARES, PHILLIES WIN. FUCK THE COWBOYS!

JT > JT


njb2017

I used to do things like this on my corporate softball team and the umps would yell at me.


ricki692

throw was high but damn freddie can throw it hard


HoskinsDadBodGod

This is by far the most Phillies outcome of all time. First and third, no outs, but nope! Let’s just try to do too much

dendenmoooshi

This is gonna be in a few YouTube comps. That's our savvy ginger jesus.


aRadioKid

downright dirty. Fuck hahaha


tyler-86

This should have been the play of the game, but alas...


TotesGnarGnar

Some dude did that to me about 10 years ago In a softball game and I’m still pissed about it.


jcaininit

Bush league /s


PukeBucket_616

I fucking hate it when announcers talk over each other. One of you is the play by play man, one of you isn't. Get it together.


tyler-86

It's one of Dontrelle's first games ever in the booth. Dude is still finding his rhythm a bit.


PukeBucket_616

Reminds me of the couple weeks Shooty Babitt did color.

soxfaninfinity

Extras have been something today


Waking_World

Baited


see_mohn

Don’t run unless you can see the ball.


Sploooooooooooooooge

That moment when it’s too late as J.T looks back and makes eye contact at JT as his weight is shifting off the base.


joeku_

lmao instant karma came right after


[deleted]

Dumb shit


lx5spd

What’s the Statcast velocity on that throw by Freeman? Looked like an absolute laser!


hdjunkie

That is also as embarrassing as falling for the hidden ball trick


ct73193

J.T on J.T crime


beckert26

Can we talk about how dumb of a throw to 1st that was? He wasn’t even remotely close to throwing him out.


fiftieth

Ive done this type of thing over the past 10 years in my beer league softball games sometimes and its worked like 5 or 6 times. Worth it


PositiveCommentsDog

Haven't seen a deke like that from Turner since the WS celebration debacle
