Wanna Bet On Phillies Future? Manager Joe Girardi Says Team Will Hit Over On Wins

With the Grapefruit League set to begin in a matter of days, Philadelphia Phillies manager Joe Girardi is confident.

How confident? Well, enough that he thinks the Phillies will be a lot better than the paltry 60-win projection coming out of Las Vegas.

“I believe so. I know our players believe so,” Girardi said on SportsRadio 94 WIP. “We have to go out and do it on the field. It’s one thing to have belief. You just have to go out and do it.”

The Phillies are coming off a 28-32 finish in the shortened 2020 campaign. With a full season scheduled ahead, Girardi and the Phillies are ignoring the 2021 prognosticators.

“People are going to make predictions all the time. That’s the business they are in,” he said. “We’re in the business of going out and winning ballgames. That’s what we need to do.”
