Phillies Pitchers exceeded 30 WAR in 2011

I don't know if I followed up on this yet since my post in May about the dominance of the Phillies' pitching in 2011, but they ended up with over 30 WAR for the year (per the baseball-reference.com link above). That's better than many of the well-known "great staffs" of the past, like the 20 win Orioles, the 97 Braves, the 66 Dodgers, the 69 Mets, etc. I know I did post a "the Phillies resembled the..." follow-up, where it turned out that the Phillies most resembled the 1997 Braves, but I don't recall putting the WAR into perspective. Here's the link to my early season item fromthe yeat that summarizes things through a good chunk of May.
