Uncustomed Heroes of 2017: Phillies
While the Phillies didn't exactly blow any doors down this year, they weren't exactly terrible. Even as the games were being lost, and fans were refusing to go to games, a new youth movement was forming, starting with call-ups from Nick Williams, Rhys Hoskins and J.P. Crawford.
Cesar Hernandez was one of the few vets that made a case for permanence, having a great start, and a great finish, while being injured for most of the mid-season.
Coming Tomorrow- They tried, but the aging core of a once-powerful team could only do so much against some young, promising rosters.
