This photo is where we last left the Phillies.
This is Ryan Howard, who, just before the moment of this photograph, was the proud owner of two healthy Achillies tendons. This was the final at-bat of Game 5 of the 2011 NLDS, and even up until the final batter that night, the Phillies still had hope to pull that game out and advance.
That's because the Philadelphia Phillies were, and remain, a very, very good team. And so, as the Fightin' Phils head into 2012, most of the pieces are already in place for another run at a World Series.
There are, however, a few minor moves the Phillies should still make to bolster their bench and bullpen and a few bigger ones to look into for the continued success of this franchise.
