Posted on September 23, 2020

Instead of talking about how the Philadelphia Phillies god-awful bullpen blew another game this season, we thought we would lighten the mood a bit with an always-fun top 5 post. This historically bad bullpen actually got us thinking about what fictional baseball pitchers from the movies we would love to add to the 2020 Phillies pitching staff.

There have certainly been some greats along the way, but here is our (then vs now) list of the best fictional pitchers in some of our favorite baseball movies.
