Eflin stepped up and gave the Phillies a solid chance to win almost every time he was out there on the mound.
Sure, the 2020 season just ended for the Philadelphia Phillies less than 24 hours ago. And yes, there are many questions to be answered over the coming off-season in regards to a number of positions. But it's not too early to examine what we can be fairly certain about next year.
The most unusual regular season in the history of Major League Baseball has finally come to an end. It was 60 games (for most teams) filled with all of the usual action: big hits, shutdown pitching, outstanding defense.
Aaron Nola, the Phillies' ace, takes the mound at 3:10 pm. It may be too late for the team already. But right now he represents a last gasp for the Phillies to get into the playoffs.
The playoffs begin in just a few short days. At the moment, we still don't know if the Phillies will be playing postseason baseball for the first time since 2011. The playoff picture is been a messy one in recent days, and now the Phillies have just one route into the Wildcard round that would open next Wednesday.
