An early season clash of National League East rivals goes down today at Citizens Bank Park, where Bryce Harper and the Philadelphia Phillies close out a three-game season-opening home series against Freddie Freeman and the Atlanta Braves. After spending a lot of money and missing the postseason for the ninth straight year, the Phils did little to improve themselves for 2021, save for a few additions to a leaky bullpen. The division-champion Braves remain the favorites in the East with a fearsome lineup and a deep pitching staff.
