2017: 86-76 NL Central Champs

Overview: The Phillies won perhaps the weakest division in all of NBC last season. They then faced the top team in the NL, the Reds, and must have sold off a potential(but unlikely?) first born as they somehow escaped in the divisional round. They couldnít mortgage any more potential children and thus got pounded by the Cubs in the NLCS. Still, this season had to be classified as a success.
The Phillies surprising run to the NLCS should be noted. Once in the playoffs, anything can happen. While usually the best teams come out on top, it doesnít always happen. For us, it is important to remember and when close it is worth it to push into the playoffs. That is why we play, right? Although, some might say we play to draft the better prospects. That is fun too. But the draft is one day. The playoffs, one winter.(one fall would be nice, but I am being realistic).
Starting Rotation: Do all stud pitchers have a last name staring with S? Chris Sale terrorizes the AL Central. Here in the NL, Max Scherzer does the same. Scherzer will win most games he is in and contend for the Cy Young. The only thing going against him is his birthday. At 33 years of age, Scott Boras would say he is just entering his prime. If you believe Mr Boras, then double down on Scherzer. Cole Hamels is the easy choice for #2 starter and he also will win a lot of games. Like Scherzer, he needs Boras to sell his long term abilities. Either way you slice it, this 1-2 punch could lead many teams to contention. After that, Aaron Nola and Tyler Chatwood round out the full time guys. They will have their games, but some matchups(LHB) could cause more trouble than others. Still, as the 3-4 guys in a rotation, you could do a lot worse. There are a few options to fill out the rotation, but perhaps the draft is a better answer.

Bullpen: The two guys listed at closer for the Phillies are not really suited to lock down the close game. Theyíve got the rating, but not really the numbers on their side. Pedro Baez will be a useable arm in the pen. Ideally, he would pitch the 7th inning, but in a pinch could be relied on for the 8th. Grant Dayton could be a LOOGY, but should never face a big RH bat. Holder Hart and Feliz sounds like a law firm. Instead they are the three other guys currently slated to hold down bullpen spots. This might change mightily on draft day, and if the Phillies hope to repeat as division champs they will need to make big changes to the relief corps.

Starting Lineup: There arenít many guys who can lead this team against either handed pitcher. Marcel Ozuna is the clear cut leader. Cesar Hernandez is next, but he specializes more in reaching base than straight out power. After that, the Phillies will rely on guys who pick on one side or the other. Long term, Jorge Alfaro will be a good catcher. For now, in limited action(i.e. against the Twins for starters) he will beat up opposing pitchers. Travis díArnaud can hit for power, and beat up lefties, but isnít a long term answer behind the plate. There are several first baseman on the roster. Long time Philly, Matt Holliday, once again has home run power, but beyond that he will only reach first. Granted, he does that well vs LHP. Likewise, Chris Davis can launch the ball, but he also wonít reach base often. That theme continues for Tommy Joseph. The Phillies, without the benefit of a DH, should really try to trade one of these guys. New Philly, Rhys Hoskins, will put on a show. Heís got on base skills and wow on the home runs. A great addition to the outfield that also has Ozuna. Odubel Herrera is average on offense, but he makes up for it by saving runs in center. Braun and Alther are copies of each other. Mid range on base but good power. Donít need both so one should join the first base(and short stop) log jams in the trade circuit. Speaking of short, Freddy Galvis likely has the job but Jorge Polanco is pushing him for time. Neither lights up the offensive score board, but they arenít helpless and can play some defense. The offense has power, no doubt, but it seems most of the time it will be solo shots. Several long term buys on this roster, though, will keep Philly fans keeping watch.

Defense and Speed: Herrera in center will prevent runs. Galvis and Hernandez, up the middle in the infield, are decent. Franco at third is not going to win gold gloves and is more lucky that he isnít challenged for a spot. Teams may be able to steal some bases of the Philly battery. The Phillies will steal as many bases as they allow, and probably more. Good speed exists.

Surplus/Deficiencies: High average hitters arenít present, and the bullpen needs help. In addition to the log jam at 1B and SS, the Phillies also have extra 2B. They could help teams fill out roster spots, likely not key players for contenders, but they have to be willing to deal. The rumors have listed these guys, but the deal has not been fulfilled.

Outlook: On a straight up analysis, it doesnít seem like this team is destined for the post season. However, the question remains open with the NL Central. There are some long term good pieces, and some aging ones. If the Phillies deem themselves out of the race, or fall out of it, they could try and capitalize on some of their better, but older, players.
The main question the Phillies must answer: Do they think they have enough to hold off the Twins? What about the Rockies? It can be hard to step away, and perhaps there is no reason to with a top starter like Scherzer.
