2013

My own plan for the Phillies will be posted at some point this fall. IN the meantime, the Daily News canvassed their writers for the same. Each one laid out a basic plan. Most of them said the same: avoid big-time free agents, try to go the Gillick way of smaller, smarter signings. I thought Marcus Hayes was joking when I read his. Basically it said that everyone will return to form and the Phillies will be fine. He did include an interesting stat: from July 16th, Ryan Howard’s fifth start, the Phillies winning percentage the rest of the year would have given them 95 wins over a whole season.

At least two writers suggested bringing back Victorino for a low salary. I would consider that if he isn’t looking for anything crazy, as the outfield market is looking slim and expensive. Sam Donellon stated that Chooch should be moved to third which I thought was kind of ridiculous. You can read the full article here.
