Does this core group still have another World Series run left in them?
That's a very relevant question in regards to this Phillies team. It's a much older bunch of players, especially in comparison to the rest of the NL East. Of their five starters, the youngest are Kyle Kendrick and John Lannan, who are each 28. The youngest member of their starting infield is 33-year old Ryan Howard. The Phillies outfield is actually pretty young, as the only one of the six players in the mix for playing time in their 30s is 32-year old Laynce Nix.

The 8th-inning death trap has been slammed shut with arguably the best setup man in baseball. Two new outfielders have been acquired...
Phillies spring training games start in just a few days, and taking a look at Phillies tickets prices for the 2013 season shows some interesting things. This might be hard to believe, but the average price of spring training tickets is higher than that of regular season tickets. According to Seat Crunch, the average price of Phillies spring training tickets is $107.80; almost ...
This one would come as a surprise, but crazier things have happened — maybe.
The Phillies are looking to trade for Giancarlo Stanton, according to Chris May of CBS Philly. It’s rare for a player to be traded during spring training, it’s also rare for a player of Stanton’s skill level to be traded at all and it’s even rarer for a player of Stanton’s ilk to be traded during...
Before everyone freaks out... let's look at this rationially. Here is the original source for this, WIP-FM's Anthony Gargano: To CBS-3 news anchor Chris May that became: I suppose it's possible that Giancarlo Stanton showed up to Marlins camp still pissed off about the Marlins many moves... ...and they're thinking...
