One-third of the season has come and gone and the Phillies have spent the majority of it in last place in the NL East. 

It's not the start that Ruben Amaro or Charlie Manuel envisioned.  There is still plenty of baseball to play, but it's typically the 40-game mark that determines what kind of team you have. 

If the Phillies do not get anything from Ryan Howard and Chase Utley and if they constantly have a starting pitcher on the DL (first Cliff Lee, Vance Worley and now Roy Halladay), then this team is probably right where it's going to stay. 

They project to finish the season with a 78-84 record after their 9-6 win over the Baltimore Orioles last night.  Their only hope for the 2012 season are comebacks from Howard, Utley, and Halladay....and they must come back and play at something approaching an All-Star level.
