The Philadelphia Phillies' season has had more twists and turns and ups and downs than a roller coaster built into the side of a mountain range this season, and the truth of the matter is that, with some of their big names still out of the lineup, we haven't seen anything yet.
So while the Phillies have been anything but predictable this season, the one thing they have been is interesting, and we all knew that was going to be the case.
After all, they have the pitching. Cliff Lee and Cole Hamels have been stellar, but did anyone expect to have to keep an eye on Roy Halladay? How about Joe Blanton's hot start or Jonathan Papelbon's saves streak?
We knew that the absence of Chase Utley and Ryan Howard would hurt the Phillies' lineup, but who expected Hunter Pence's streaky year or Carlos Ruiz's MVP-like campaign?
To say that the early part of the season was a struggle for the Phillies would be a drastic understatement, but now, right in the thick of the month of May, it sure seems as though this club is starting to fire on all cylinders as they wait for the return of their All-Star, right side of the infield.
But baseball is a funny sport, and sometimes, words don't tell the entire story. Stats do. So if you're looking for one tell-tale stat for each Phillies' player currently on the 25-man roster, look no further.
Here's why certain guys are on fire and others are still struggling.
