The Phillies had some great pitchers come through in the last 10 years, but which ones had the best seasons in that span?

No. 5: 2010 Roy Oswalt

Although Oswalt only spent half of the 2010 season with the Phillies, he winds up on the top five list as he was nothing short of dominant in his time with the team after the deadline.

Oswalt made 13 appearances with the Phillies after being acquired. He finished the year with a record of 7-1 with a 1.74 ERA, just 16 earned runs allowed, 21 walks, and 73 strike outs for a K/9 of 7.95. He racked up 3.3 wins above replacement just in the part of the season he spent in Philadelphia.

Oswalt took home a win in the National League Division Series before going 1-1 in the Championship Series. He started and won Game Two, was the losing pitcher coming in as relief in Game Four, and took a no decision in Game Six, the final game of the series.
