Philadelphia Phillies: Lack of Offense Affects Everything Else
Ezra Shaw/Getty Images

A mediocre at best week for the Phills, considering the anemic offensive lineup with which they have been playing.

The bats are not just a problem because the Phillies are struggling to slug, it's actually leading to a few other issues.

How the lack of offense has made the Phillies feel more acutely the loss of Ryan Howard;

And how the decision-making of manager Charlie Manuel has come into question.
