Phillies fans have gotten their wish. On Friday morning, the breaking news arrived that the Phillies have fired Joe Girardi. With the team having high expectations this season, it was inexcusable that they were 22-29 at this point.

Because of this, the front office believed that a change needed to be made and it has indeed arrived. Girardi's time with the club is no more.

Now, the hope is that Philadelphia can get back on track and find a way to sneak into the postseason. They've been a major disappointment, but we'll see if a change in leadership helps this team do a 180.
