The Philadelphia Phillies have a pitching staff built to contend. You can't win ballgames without giving those pitchers a lead, however, so the Phillies spent most of the offseason retooling their lineup, both in and out of house.
Through the second week of games, most of those new additions are playing well. That includes newcomers like Ben Revere and Michael Young, and returning superstars like Chase Utley and Ryan Howard.
With the second week of games coming to a close, it's time once again to see how some of those aforementioned names and the rest of the club have fared early in the spring.
The usual spring training caveat applies here: Numbers aren't everything. For most of this club, spring training is going to be a time of preparation—not performance. Keep that in mind as we evaluate the winners and loser from the second week of Grapefruit League action.
