Which members of the 2008 Phillies team were the unsung heros?

Celebrating the 10th anniversary of the Phillies second World Series championship in franchise history, the obvious names of Ryan Howard, Chase Utley, Jimmy Rollins, Cole Hamels, Shane Victorino and Brad Lidge stand out.

Matt Stairs will forever be remembered for his pinch hit home run against the Dodgers in the NLCS that still hasn’t landed.  We can also add in Jayson Werth, Pat Burrell and Jamie Moyer for good measure as players who contributed on a consistent basis.

However, there were some players who go a bit unnoticed that contributed in a big way to this club. All the players had a hand in the title, so those not mentioned are not forgotten, but here are the unsung heroes from the 2008 championship team.
