Phillies regular season is approaching quickly, so let’s figure out what needs to happen in order for 2017 to be considered a successful season.
Let’s get this out of the way now: the success of the Phillies this season will not be determined by wins or losses. While it would be great if they could bump up their win total by at least a couple of wins this year, it is by no means a requirement. If other things occur that better help the team’s future, then this season can be considered a success.
