Phillies President Comments on Joe Girardi's Future

The Philadelphia Phillies are off to a terrible start to the 2022 MLB season, however don't expect any major changes coming to the ball club or their leadership group. 

Phillies president of baseball operations Dave Dombrowski met with the media on Friday and didn't want to play the blame game. He admitted times are tough right now for his baseball team but wouldn't point the finger at Girardi specifically:

It's not Joe's fault that we've been shut out or scored one run seven times. We're a club that, he's been in charge as far as handling situations. We're prepared to play. We go out there on a day-in, day-out basis. We battle. I know Joe's disappointed with our record. We're all disappointed. It's been a challenge for us. But I also think we have the capabilities and abilities to play much better and win a bunch of games. I think we're better than this.

It's been a slow start to say the least for the Phillies, even with ranking near the top of several offensive categories in spite of their struggles. The team's offense needs to find their consistent game as they've been shut out three times so far and have even been no-hit by the Mets. 

Expect to see the Phillies find their game and turn things around this season. While Girardi isn't on the hot seat quite yet, another month of misery could change the temperature in Philly.
