How did the Phillies season in 2017 compare to 2016?
Another Phillies season has come to an end, and now is the time to look back and see if the team made the improvements they were hoping for.
Going into 2017, there was much optimism that this young team could take a step back toward relevancy.
Given the pending call-ups of young talent and the hope that young talent already at the big league level would take the next step forward in their development, there was hope for an exciting 2017 season.
