Without even a single game having been played, it's time to crown the Philadelphia Phillies champions of the NL East.
In fact, if there aren't as many injuries as last season, not winning this division would be one of the biggest disappointments of all time for the Phillies.
How can a team with this much in a starting rotation not win at least four games per week? That would basically be winning every series of the season, and that's more than possible.
By breaking down this team, you must start off with their pitching because it's jaw-dropping. This rotation might just be—on paper—the greatest in Major League history.
The reason is thanks to Cliff Lee, who decided to return to the Phillies this offseason after turning down big money from the Yankees.
Here's a look at each starting pitchers' career and 2010 numbers:
Career: 169-86, 3.32 ERA, two Cy Young awards, three 20-win seasons
2010: 21-10, 2.44 ERA, nine complete games, four shutouts, two no-hitters, Cy Young award
Career: 102-61, 3.85 ERA, one Cy Young award, one 20-win season
2010: 12-9, 3.18 ERA, seven complete games
Career: 60-45, 3.53 ERA, 2009 World Series MVP
2010: 12-11, 3.06 ERA, 211 strikeouts
Career: 150-83, 3.18 ERA, two 20-win seasons
2010: 7-1, 1.74 ERA, 82.2 innings pitched, 53 hits (with Phillies)
That's all you need to know about the Phillies rotation, and by the way, Joe Blanton is the fifth starter.
The lineup is great too with your normal cast of characters including Ryan Howard, Chase Utley, Jimmy Rollins, and Shane Victorino.
The biggest change will be in right field, where Jayson Werth signed with the Nationals. Ben Francisco is listed as first on the depth chart, but don't count out Domonic Brown to win the starting job.
The Phillies bullpen will count on Brad Lidge putting together consecutive successful seasons as closer.
Other than some type of rotation meltdown or major injuries like last season, the Phillies are in for a monster season, where not winning the pennant would be a disappointment.
