The 2013 Major League Baseball season is going to be unlike any you've ever seen before.
Sounds dramatic, but with the Houston Astros setting off on their voyage of the American League West, that's a fact. With each league now housing a balanced number of teams, this season really will be unlike any of its predecessors, playing host to more interleague play than in years past.
For the Philadelphia Phillies and their fans, however, that statement rings particularly true. Not only will they face more American League teams, highlighted by at least one bout against every team in the American League Central, but they'll face other challenges closer to home.
The National League East is only getting better. The Washington Nationals and Atlanta Braves are two of the best teams in the National League. The Miami Marlins and New York Mets will have some young talent.
The Phillies enter the 2013 season as a relative unknown. With an aging roster sprinkled with a few younger players, this could be a club that contends for a World Series, but it could also very well be a club "in transition."
But regardless of what happens, we're looking forward to another season of baseball. Here are 25 of the best series the Phillies will play this upcoming season.
