Yea kind of like the Sixers to me. They have talent. Probably not ready for the World Series but good pitching and timely hitting and a little positive attitude might make good things happen. Still not sure about managing but you can't argue with results--even if decisions seem haphazard.

Phillies are #13 in pitching and #18 in hitting. So much for stats lol.

Pickups of Cabrera and Ramos over this past week are some really good finds. Two guys with OPS over .800 is crucial for this team. They struggled in Cincy but splitting in Boston (and really could've won both) is encouraging. Nola and Arrieta pitched like aces. That was a playoff atmosphere and both pitchers stepped up big time. Now they need to roll teams like the Marlins coming up. It's great to see the team emerging well before we thought.
