The Philadelphia Phillies are the best team in the MLB this season, and they have had an impressive first half. Under Charlie Manuel, the Phillies have dealt with injuries to Chase Utley, Roy Oswalt, and just about everyone else on the team to go 54-32.
The Phillies have been the most talked about team in baseball since they signed Cliff Lee in the offseason to give them four legitimate aces.
Their rotation was supposed to be historically good. It has been very good, but they have not been historic just yet.
Roy Oswalt has been injured twice (once during the time he spent away from the team), Lee struggled in the beginning of the season, and Vance Worley has picked up the slack.
It's been an interesting first half of the season for the Phillies, and it's time to make or predictions for what will be an exciting second half.
