MLB: Spring Training-Toronto Blue Jays at Philadelphia Phillies Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

It’s done.

Spring training is over and the Phillies have finalized their 25-man roster, with some interesting decisions having been made. Congratulations go out to Brock Stassi and Daniel Nava, both of whom overcame the disadvantage of not being on the 40-man roster to make the ball club.

Joining me on this week’s podcast is Comcast Sports Net’s Marshall Harris, who has the pre- and post-game hosting duties for the Phillies once again this year. Among the items we discussed...

  • Is Aaron Altherr for real?
  • Is it possible Altherr is a port of the team’s core?
  • What should we be thinking about Aaron Nola?
  • Jeanmar Gomez is going to close again, but for how long?
  • Maikel Franco has to develop into a better hitter in 2017.
  • Which Phils prospect will get called up to the Majors first?
  • How many wins should we expect from the Phillies this season?

Also, with Opening Day just days away, Sirius/XM’s Mike Ferrin joined the podcast once again to give us his predictions for the 2017 season. I followed with my picks, with division winners, LCS participants, World Series winner and end-of-season award winners as well.
