The consensus amongst, um, most people right now is that the Diamondbacks aren't very good. If you ask those same people about the Phillies, they'd probably say similar things, though.
But as John Stolnis said today, the Phillies need to be careful of these probably not great Diamondbacks. They have a history lowering their level of play to wherever there opponents are currently playing, and then beating them at their own game. By losing.
