Kiss 'Em Goodbye: Philadelphia Phillies
The core is aging, but they may have another run or two left in them
Kiss 'Em Goodbye is a series focusing on MLB teams as their postseason dreams fade -- whether in September (or before), the League Division Series, League Championship Series or World Series. It combines a broad overview of this season from Buster Olney, a take from Baseball Prospectus, a look toward a potential 2011 move courtesy of Rumor Central and Kevin Goldstein's farm system overview. You can find all the teams on one page by going here.
Now, it's time to kiss the Philadelphia Phillies -- the losers of the NLCS -- goodbye.
For the full breakdown of the Phillies' future from all angles -- Olney's take, BP's take, Rumor Central's ideas and buzz, and the farm system -- you need to be an ESPN Insider.
