Well, it hasn't been pretty.
The Philadelphia Phillies are now more than halfway through the regular season, and it has been a horrendous one for a club that came into the 2012 season with World Series expectations.
They've been riddled with enough injuries and inconsistent players to make any holey comparisons, like to afghan blankets and Swiss cheese, seem too kind.
If you're looking for a bright side, I'm struggling to find one. Is the fact that this team still has another half season to play really any more comforting? Is this a team that can truly leap over at least three good teams in their own division to even have a shot at making the postseason?
I'm not so sure.
But one thing I am sure of is what needs to change. In this slideshow, we'll take a look at the first half of each Phillies' player and slap a grade on them. They'll either have to stay the course or get better to make a difference.
Can it be done? Well, only time will tell.
