    It's not like Arbuckle did anything since leaving to strongly recommend himself. We could be in the same mess since he was another pure scouting guy.

    I think the point is that you pick a functional and effective front office with a high quality GM and poach somebody who has been close to that GM. You want to acquire good habits, not bad.

    At this point maybe they can get Hinkie to help, he can't be any worse, right? I say 72 wins. Rollins gets traded once he hits the franchise record for hits and we also deal Papelbon and Lee.

    Hinkie or Roseman would be a huge upgrade.

    While I don't see us being a playoff team, I think a lot of you guys are really over exaggerating how many games we are going to lose. Keep in mind that this team started to really respond to Sandberg down the stretch going 36-24 and that was without a decent pitcher in the Burnett/Halladay slot.

    81-85 could happen, although 76-80 is more likely. This is also assuming we are healthy and do not trade anyone.

    So the team will either play 166 games or 156. Weird season.

    I think 81-85 and 76-80 are the range in wins he could see not W/L record.

    The good money is probably has them below .500, but being the homer I am I put them at 173-0 ( including playoffs)

    I'm so ready to break a TV/phone or two in disappointment/disgust...lol

    Predict the Phillies 2014 Win Total

    Phillies have definitely fallen far from the graces of a respectable ball club. i remember when the night before opening day felt like Christmas eve.

    oh well. 68 wins. Raj should be throw in the Delaware, maybe he'll float down to Washington and mess up that organization for us.

    I'm with you here, and I hope we're right!

    I'm generally disgusted with the way this team has been run into the ground. A lot of it has to do with Amaro. A lot has to do with the farm system. The division is below average, and there should still be enough raw talent in the lineup to go .500.

    The bullpen is a joke, but if the bullpen were good I'd have voted 86-90 wins.
    Jayson Nix is my early season Irrational Hatred target. He satisfies the Ty Wigginton/Laynce Nix/Michael Martinez criteria as a bounce-around loser ball player who never contributes to winning teams. I hope Laynce's brother get his outright release as soon as Freddy gets back.

    I wouldn't be surprised to see both Nix and Mayberry gone after Ruf and Galvis get healthy

    That's not true. They were terrible under Sandberg.

    Not sure how 20-22 turned into 36-24
