The Phillies finished third in the NL in runs scored despite losing several key offensive contributors for large chunks of the season, and they posted the third-best starters' ERA (unadjusted for park) while getting more innings from their starters than any other club in baseball. At full strength, it's a solid defensive club, and if you catch the bullpen on the right night, the Phillies can look pretty strong. They're the best club in the league and best-positioned to beat an AL team in the World Series, but like every club in the postseason, they do have a few flaws.
