General manager Pat Gillick has been very aggressive about trying to upgrade the Phillies' pitching staff on the fly, and his moves have mostly paid off -- enough to cover the team's excessive commitment to using Adam Eaton and Kyle Kendrick (neither of whom should sniff October).

With one of the NL's few AL-style offenses and a strong bullpen, the Phillies are set up well to win at least one short playoff series.
