How fast can the Phillies win another World Series?

Philadelphia fans witnessed what many thought was an impossible feat; the Philadelphia Eagles have won the Super Bowl. It’s the city’s first championship since the Phillies beat Tampa Bay in 2008, but the Super Bowl is the most elusive award the city has ever sought.

In a city where winning is rare and addictive, fans are already starving for the next championship. Among the Flyers, Sixers, and Phillies, which franchise will, as Phillies owner John Middleton said, get that “f’n trophy back.”

Traditional thinking would be the Sixers are next to win a championship as The Process and Sam Hinkie’s vision continues around Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons. While The Process is far from complete the Sixers track to a championship appears laid out.

However, the Phils are looking at a new era of players and leadership that could lead them towards another World Series. A team built around Aaron Nola, Rhys Hoskins, J.P. Crawford, and Scott Kingery could be the next Cole Hamels, Ryan Howard, Jimmy Rollins, Chase Utley core that leads the city to a World Series.

Now, much will change in the coming years whether it be free agency, injuries, or any other unforeseen events. With the National League East appearing to cripple with the Marlins selling everything and the Nationals unlikely to keep Bryce Harper, the Phillies championship window is opening up.
