Unfortunately for Philadelphia, it could be a rough year for Phillies’ fans as the club has openly acknowledged its rebuilding phase and dealt away some key pieces this offseason.
Jimmy Rollins’ loss, who was traded to the Dodgers for a pair of pitching prospects, will certainly be felt by the team but is a good sign of retooling moving forward. Same goes for veteran Marlon Byrd who was dealt to the Reds in exchange for Ben Lively, a highly regarded pitching prospect.
The Phillies added to their roster by extending one-year deals to Aaron Harang and Chad Billingsley who will join Cole Hamels, Jerome Williams and
David Buchanan in the mix for spots in the starting rotation. Cliff Lee is sidelined indefinitely which does not help their cause.
The acquisition of Rule 5 guy Odubel Herrera and the eventual arrival of hot prospects Maikel Franco and Aaron Nola should also provide some hope for the Phillies future.
So don’t be so down Phillies’ ticket holders and fans, the top of the rotation backed by a bullpen that was dominant down the stretch in 2014 just might be enough to keep this Phillies team in the Wild Card conversation.
