Chicago's also lost like 10 games in a row. Their tank is better than ours.
I think maybe the most realistic possible highest the Phils could get is maybe #4. They're only 1 game out of the 5th worst record and then 3 games out of #4...but I don't expect the phillies to cotinue to win 1 out of every 10 games for the rest of the season so eventually they'll get back to being a .470-.490ish team. I don't see this team having a strong finish like last year though so I think they'll have a higher pick than last season. Just hoping it is top 10 for free agency protection... and also because this draft is according to Baseball America and some other draft evaluators said to be better than last year.
