What Phillies are missing to make playoff run:

Mike Trout. If their scouts had read The Press, they wouldn't have missed this amazing regional prospect. Hope they've learned better.

I think the Phillies need a big bat with power and two more good, veteran bullpen arms that can get people out.

Any chance of trading Delmon Young for Jayson Werth? We could even throw in John Mayberry Jr. to “sweeten” the deal!

Most of what the Phillies need is more power hitting with men on base.

They need to improve the defense, mostly in the outfield. Those guys are pretty good at catching the ball but can’t throw that well. Lastly, they need to beat the teams ahead of them, Washington and Atlanta.
