Phillies 2018 Season in Review

The Phillies' season may be over, but there's plenty left to say about/think on/want from it.

Rhys Hoskins was Great in 2018 - Except When He Wasn’t

Rhys Hoskins was excellent for long stretches of the season. Unfortunately, there were other stretches too.

The Phillies Were Not Strong Up the Middle in 2018

The middle infield was a potential strength for the 2018 Phillies. For the most part, it was not.

What’s in store for Jerad Eickhoff and J.P. Crawford in 2019?

Eickhoff’s and Crawford’s future are uncertain after "lost seasons" in 2018.

The top of the 2018 Phillies rotation had a job to do

A large man who became enormous, and a young man who stood tall.

It was a strange year for Gabe Kapler’s bullpen

From Hoby Milner to Seranthony Dominguez, things got weird in Gabe Kapler’s relief corps

What Matt Klentak did just wasn’t enough

Matt Klentak set out to bolster the Phillies’ roster in an effort to make a surprise trip to the postseason. You know by now how it all ended.

Odubel Herrera is the most interesting Phillie to watch this off-season

What do the Phillies do with their former Rule 5 pick this winter?

The Phillies’ 2018 outfield was historically bad

Well, this outfield certainly was.....something

Phillies statistical oddities of 2018

Statistical oddities of the 2018 Phils, both meaningful and not so much.

Has Maikel Franco run out of time?

It was an interesting season for the Phillies’ third baseman. Just probably not interesting enough.

The good, the bad, and the worse of Phillies catchers

What are we thinking about this year’s backstops?

One last mess at McFadden’s

A bar, a ballpark, and the four-second delay that connected them.

Mitch Walding gave the second-half Phillies a rare feel-good moment

Nothing went right for the Phillies after August 5. But one thing, one time, went right for Mitch Walding.

One of Gabe Kapler’s first mistakes haunted him all season

Anyone waiting to pounce on the Phillies’ polarizing new manager did not have to wait long.
