Their biggest problem is numbers and history. Only three NL teams have ever repeated as World Series Champions, and only one of them since 1922.
1907-1908, the Cubs.... and we know THAT story.
1921-1922 NY Giants.
1975-1976 Big Red Machine.
In fact, in the last 30 years, since the Bronx Zoo Yankees of 1977-1978, only two clubs have repeated:
The 1992-1993 Blue Jays and the
Threepeat Yankees of 1998-2000.
Numbers and history could be their biggest foe.

''Is it possible that Eaton pitches well enough during the course of spring training to perhaps compete? It's possible,'' Amaro said.''But as I see it today, those are the four guys I see in a competition for the fifth starter.''
No, he needs to go the way of Burrell and either be cut or on another team.
Mandy - are you the new Phillies beat writer?

Yes. I am the new Phillies beat writer.

...and you probably know nothing about the Phils' pathetic history, do you? After all, the Cubs have as many titles as the Phils, and the Cubs haven't won one in over 100 years.

I know baseball.
I know that every team, every season, is its OWN team and is not linked to any other of the past, present, or future.
You have no clue.
You're an "apples and oranges" kind of thinker...You link things together that mean nothing.
