Everyone loves a good surprise, right?
The Philadelphia Phillies sure do, and luckily enough for just about every fan around the sport of baseball, the offseason is chocked full of them. Without the joy of actual baseball to occupy our daily lives, we fans of the sport rely on the secretive speculation of free agent destinations and the behind the scenes trade scenarios that every general manager plans for, but few pull the trigger on.
However, it would be asinine to believe that baseball's greatest stunning moments are limited to negotiations and paperwork. After all, some of the greatest, most surprising moments in the history of the game have come on the field, as a result of incredible, single handed performances or team accomplishments. Frankly, unless you've dusted off your crystal ball recently, none of us know what to expect during any given game, and that, in essence is why we love baseball.
The Phillies are one of baseball's longest standing franchises, so it shouldn't be much of a surprise (no pun intended) to learn that this franchise has had its fair share of surprises. Ranking them isn't easy, but allow us to take a glimpse at some of the most stunning moments in the history of the Phillies' organization.
