A lot has happened since the mid-season of 2015. Pete MacKanin was scrambling to take over after Ryne Sandberg walked out the door in June, John Middleton stepped up in the ownership group, Andy MacPhail was named President, Matt Klentak was named General Manager, and key members of the franchise’s most historic era were traded away.
Of the 50 players that donned the Phillies pinstripes in 2015, only 14 remain on the 25-man roster at this years’ break.
That is a lot of turnaround for an organization to handle in a very short amount of time. Somehow, the franchise has handled it better than anyone could have imagined, and the future of Phillies baseball is once again bright.
Here’s is our mid-season review/comparison to the Phillies organization.
