for the first time in a decade, Veles Fans have a lot to be thankful for this year. He ran away from NL Pennant, how could they not?
With the World Series out of sight in the rear view and the Winter Meetings near, Thanksgiving is the perfect time to reflect on the past season.
Let’s recap all the wonderful things we can be thankful for this year.
Kyle Schwarber wasn’t near the last Thanksgiving And now every Phillies fan would gladly make his dish. The first batter hit 46 home runs in the regular season, setting a new Phillies record for home runs by an outfielder.
Also added 6 Postseason Schwarbombs including this San Diego beast.
Remember Joe Girardi? I choose not to. Instead, be thankful for Rob Thomson was promoted in the season to manager. The Phillies had a 65-46 record under the “Topper”. His solid officiating style helped the playoffs secure the National League pennant for the first time since 2009.
He is every Philadelphia resident’s favorite Canadian.
The Phillies’ head of baseball operations made the Phillies successful again. I’ve been saying for some time that Dombrowski’s past successes should be cause for optimism.
was able to convert Phillies tire fire in 2020 He converted to a bullpen that came into the clutch during the playoffs. He was able to find such rough diamonds as Garrett Stubbs, Andrew Bellatti, and Brandon Marsh, and with the help of the coaching staff, turn them into above-average MLB players.
Be thankful this man made John Middleton over the luxury tax threshold and he will likely do so again in 2023.
They have the earliest domestically grown phyllis. While he was stumbling down from IL late in the season, Seranthony showed he had closer material by posting a 1.69 ERA in the playoffs when it really mattered. He’ll likely be shutting down Phightins Games in 2023, and for that, we can all be thankful.
It’s cool and fun and has it Killer playlist.
He’s also not Andrew Knapp. Be thankful.
This guy played through a tear in his elbow. He broke his thumb by a Blake Snell fastball. This guy has struggled for the Philadelphia Phillies. I don’t care how much money he earns. He is underpaid.
Through it all, Harper has empowered the Phillies through the playoffs. Like Kyle Schwarber and Rhys Hoskins, 6 postseason homers have slammed. 500 in the NLDS against the Braves and . 400 in the NLCS against the Padres.
He gets hot at the right time, starting with this homer against the Cardinals.
Good Aaron Nola
Aaron Nola scored the second highest in World War II in the Netherlands With a 6. he had a 3.25 ERA in the regular season. He threw 2 complete games and had an 8.10 k/bb ratio. Nola also pitched the Gems against the Cardinals and Braves in the playoffs.
The Phillies’ second ace returned. give thanks.
