In case you weren't aware, winning a World Series is not an easy thing to accomplish. We're talking about a sport where in any given season a team can make the postseason by the skin of their teeth, get hot at the right time and stun the world.
So how do you best position yourself to win a World Series? Is it some kind of advanced science? Do you work on developing young talent through the draft, or throw millions of dollars at free agents? The truth is that there is no right answer.
It's never easy to look at a club's roster and narrow down exactly what it is that they need to do to win the World Series, but a quick look at the Philadelphia Phillies roster turns up some obvious answers. For example, they need to stay healthy and have their younger players produce.
But this isn't a game where one man can realistically change the landscape of a team's hopes. It's a team sport, and luckily for the Phillies, I've created a to-do list for each player on their active roster. Following it to the letter should put this team on course for a parade in October.
