Predicting the 2020 Philadelphia Phillies

As we begin to prepare for the commencement of spring, it is only fair that we start talking about Phillies baseball. The boys of summer are currently down in Clearwater and are just 22 days away from embarking on their 162 game journey. To get you ready for the season, I figured that it would be a good idea to predict the season’s outcome for all 26 men on the Phillies (projected) opening day roster. Along with that, I will be predicting the Phillies overall record for the 2020 season as well as determining on whether or not I believe the Phillies are a playoff team.
