The Philadelphia Phillies are expected to be the class of the National League in 2011. 

With Cliff Lee, Roy Halladay, Cole Hamels and Roy Oswalt, the Phillies have perhaps the most fearsome pitching rotation, on paper, in the modern baseball era.

Philadelphia has been installed as 13-to-4 favorites to win the World Series. The Phillies are overwhelming 1-to-4 favorites to take the National League pennant. 

The over/under on their win total has been placed at 96, which is also the best mark for any team in the league in the preseason. 

But with the loss of Jayson Werth to the Washington Nationals and now an injury to star second-baseman Chase Utley, the Phillies should have some concerns heading into the upcoming season. 

What follows is a list of 11 predictions you probably haven't heard about the Phillies 2011 campaign.
