During their 135-year history, the Phillies have had their share of good teams. But which made the top ten list for best in franchise history?
There are several ways to approach ranking the top ten teams in Phillies franchise history. The ultimate goal is to win the World Series, and since this has only been done twice in 135 seasons, those two teams have to rank on top. However, several of the top teams performed better statistically during the regular season, but for some reason or another, came up short of the championship. Therefore, a second ranking will be given under that criteria.
