Would Charlie be fired midseason? Our Phillies Nation contributors got together to give you their boldest prediction for 2013. What will Ryan Howard do? Could the Phillies really trade Halladay or Lee? How well will Cole do? Read our thoughts, then let us know what your bold prediction for the upcoming year is in the comments section. Charlie goes? -Brian Michael: The Phillies struggle early and Charlie Manuel is fired midseason. Young youthful again: -Eric Seidman: Michael Young play more like his 2011-self and hits .314/.366/.478. Chooch back to earth: -Corey Seidman: Carlos Ruiz hits below .280 and the Phillies (88-74) finish in 2nd place to the Nats (93-69). Utley not healthy: -Don M.: Chase Utley goes on the 60-day DL and finishes the season (and his Phillies career) there. Utley healthy: -Ryan Dinger: Chase Utley starts 145 games this season and Michael Young hits .320/.370/.450 with 15 home runs -Nick Staskin: Chase Utley will play over 130 games and seemingly return to form to post a stay line close to .300/.400/.450 with 25+ HR Can Chase stay healthy the whole year? (AP) Please let this one NOT happen: -Jon Nisula: One of Roy Halladay or Cliff Lee is traded at the deadline. We could deal with this: -Ian Riccaboni: Ben Revere hits TWO home runs in 2013. More seriously: Ryan Howard hits .250/.300/.400 with 35 HRs. Time for some DomBombs: -Pat Gallen: Domonic Brown hits .275/.335/.475 and slugs 18-20 home runs.
