The Phillies Have Scored 32 Runs in Their First 4 Games

So imagine if they had kept Cliff Lee (and further imagine that he had not gotten hurt in spring training and emerged as their #2 starter). 110 wins?

Sure, the team has issues with the back of its bullpen, but with the extraction of Pedro Feliz and his awful on-base percentage, the addition of Placido Polanco and the renewed health of Raul Ibanez, the Phillies' lineup from top to bottom is very tough. Yes, they'll lose a high-scoring game or two (especially until J.C. Romero and a hopefully rejuvenated Brad Lidge return), but they'll win more than they lose.

Right now, all of the hitting is fun to watch.

The best start to the season since 1993 is very encouraging.

Hallady pitching a close game and a complete game on Sunday was impressive. He is as advertised and more.
