Off-Topic, All season....Again! The Official Philadelphia Phillies Thread V2.0

Spring Training in less than a month. Jimmy Rollins is on Spotlight and he just guarenteed the Phillies will make the playoffs.


"If we don't get to the World Series, it will probably be a dissiapointment. Getting to the playoffs shouldn't even be talked about. We should make the playoffs and we will make the playoffs."


Everyone post your projected 25-man lineups

Looking at that, I'd say we are better than the Marlins of last year, with a better pitching staff.

The Phillies pretty much kept the same offense, but greatly improved their pitching staff. Just getting Wagner alone would have been a huge upgrade, but getting Worrell for a set up man and getting Eric Milton for the rotation is even better.

I agree, this team looks good enough that anything less than a playoff appearance would be a bad season.

looking around the division, its so bad now. The Braves, I think are finally done (which over the past 5 years is something I didn't say). The Marlins made some cost-cutting moves again and won't be back (losing Pudge is huge). The Mets suck. The Expos suck without Vlad now. Sheffield and Vladimir Guerrero were Phillie killers and now they're both gone.

The rest of the division isn't as bad as you all think. Phillies should still win it but it won't be by 20 games or anything.

I am looking forward to the Phils making the playoffs and making a run at the World Series this year. with the pitching that we aquired this off-season, our rotation is going to be way better than it was last year.

I am looking for:
- Brett Myers to pitch at another level this year and show signs of becoming that ace pitcher that he has been hyped to be.

- Pat Burrell to return to form and become one of the leagues most dangerous hitters again. we really need for him to have a great season.

- Jimmy Rollins to become a good hitter while cutting down on the strikeouts and walking more. he also has to use his speed more when on base, more steals.

- David Bell to have a healthy season.

- Marlon Byrd to improve on his 1st season at lead-off (which he did very well). I feel his defensive game is fine.

I can't wait for the season to start to see those Phighten Phils baby!

Shouldn't we have just added on to the other Phillies thread? Oh well.
I'd rather Jason play the whole season up here. That being said,here's what I want for the team in 2004:

*Burrell to regain his 2002 form
*Wolf and the rest of the rotation to win more than 20 games
*Michaels to stay the whole season
*Wagner to lead the leauge in saves

and most of all

A huge parade down Broad Street
I can't wait for the Phillies season,in fact,I've begun to wear all my Phillies gear again

I agree. As long as they play up to their ability level they should win the division, no question about it.

I love the optimism but the Braves have won the division 11 years in a row. That is unheard of, I have to pick them till they stop winning. Dont discount a young up and coming pitching staff for the Marlins. The Mets and Expos should be non-factors. On paper the Phillies looks like the favorite, but in an 162 game season anything and everything can happen, and since this is Philadelphia let not get our hopes up just yet.

Phils did keep the same offense, but if Burrell can rebound & Rollins cut down on strikeouts, it will be MUCH improved!
Rollins says "he gets it", after watching what the top 2 in Florida's order did during the playoffs.

I'll have to agree, as I'd rather see Jason Michaels on the bench then that worthless Doug Glanville. Glanville can't hit, can't walk, and isn't a very good centerfielder. Why did Wade waste a roster spot and money on this guy???

Other then that, this season looks promising. A very deep rotation (although still lacking a definite #1 punch...hopefully, one of these guys steps up and provides that), backed by a solid bullpen, and an offense that should be one of the better ones in the NL at the very least. Definitely sounds like a playoff team to me. We'll have to see. The two keys to the offense, as I see it (and others have mentioned it also) is the improvement of Burrell and Rollins this season. Rollins needs to use his skills appropriately, and Burrell needs to remember how to hit the ball. If those two things happen, and the Phils have luck with injuries not happening, they should be good.

No one knew Jason Beckett was a bondafide #1 ace until the NLCS anyways. I think it is more important to have a solid rotation, than a true #1 pitcher.

Just announced on WIP: Kevin Millwood agrees on a 1 year $11.5 million dollar contract, avoiding arbitration, and leaving us in speculation as to when exactly he'll sign for long term.

I read today, that he did all his workouts last season inside, because of the turf.
Kerrigan said he'll be running outside with the team this year, because of the grass.
