  1. NOTE: The Phillies were ranked 1st in all of baseball in fielding and pitching. 16th in batting. It was obvious in the playoffs that the Phils bats were lacking. Especially in power. With their off season moves they have arguably the most powerful bench in baseball. In a long season these power bats will prove invaluable either off the bench to pinch hit or replace the starters in the later innings. They also can fit in nicely for starters that fall to injuries. -Bloggo ( “The Philadelphia Story- A Philly Tale” https://philadelphiatale.wordpress.com/ )
