29-year old switch-hitting CF Shane Victorino tied for 18th with Tim Lincecum in the voting for the N.L. MVP Voting. He played in 156 games for the Phillies last season and he was 181 for 620 (.292 avg, .803 OPS) with 102 runs scored, 10 homers, 62 RBIs and 25 stolen bases. Victorino has now played in six years in the majors appearing in 643 games in which he is 611 for 2,151 (.284 avg, .774 OPS) with 365 runs scored, 44 homers, 224 RBIs and 109 stolen bases. Victorino is like the Energizer Bunny at the top of the lineup for the Phillies and he should continue to be a good player for at least the next few years.

Werth is a late bloomer but he should be a good player for the next few years for the Phillies.

30-year old lefty swinging 2B Chase Utley finished 8th in the voting for the N.L. MVP Award. He played in 156 games for the Phillies last season and he was 161 for 571 (.282 avg, .905 OPS) with 112 runs scored, 31 homers, 93 RBIs and 23 stolen bases. Utley has now played 7 years for the Phillies appearing in 891 games in which he is 978 for 3,310 (.295 avg, .902 OPS) with 602 runs scored, 161 homers, 585 RBIs and 83 stolen bases. Utley picked his game up even higher in the post season as he is currently in his prime right now. As long as Utley is batting right in front of Ryan Howard he will continue to put up huge numbers.

30-year old lefty swinging 1B Ryan Howard finished third in the MVP voting of the N.L. behind only Albert Pujols and Hanley Ramirez. Howard played in 160 games for the Phillies last year and he was 172 for 616 (.279 avg, .931 OPS) with 105 runs scored, 45 homers, 141 RBIs and 8 stolen bases. He has now played in 732 games in his six years in Philly and he is 750 for 2,687 (.279 avg, .961 OPS) with 465 runs scored, 222 homers, 640 RBIs and 10 stolen bases. There is no reason to think that Howard won’t compete for this award every year that he stays healthy for the next at least 4-5 years as he has the most power of any hitter in all of baseball.

The Phillies have signed 34-year old righty swinging Placido Polanco to a 3-year, $18 million dollar deal with a mutual option for a fourth year. Polanco played in 153 games for the Tigers last season and he was 176 for 618 (.285 avg, .727 OPS) with 82 runs scored, 10 homers, 72 RBIs and 7 stolen bases. Polanco has now played 12 years in the majors in which he is 1,671 for 5,511 (.303 avg, .761 OPS) with 826 runs scored, 90 homers, 579 RBIs and 71 stolen bases. This is a nice little upgrade for the Phillies as Polanco should be able to defend as well as Feliz while giving the team a hitter with a higher upside, especially from a contact and average point of view.

The Philadelphia Phillies sign Brian Schneider

The Phillies have signed 33-year old lefty swinging catcher Brian Schneider to a 2-year, $2.75 million dollar contract. Schneider played in 59 games for the Phillies last season and he was 37 for 170 (.218 avg, .627 OPS) with 11 runs scored, 3 homers and 24 RBIs. Schneider has now played in 926 games in his 10 years in the majors and he is 709 for 2,826 (.251 avg, .697 OPS) with 247 runs scored, 59 homers and 356 RBIs. This was a good signing for the Phillies as Schneider is a very capable catcher who could start if Carlos Ruiz needs time off due to a injury.
