I am now working on the Houston Astros Top 20 Prospects list. The next system in line is the Philadelphia Phillies, to be followed by the Chicago White Sox, Colorado Rockies, New York Yankees, Cincinnati Reds, Los Angeles Angels, and the Miami Marlins.
Use this thread to discuss the Philadelphia Phillies farm system. Possible topics for discussion include, but are certainly not limited to,
****The Phillies have had two rough major league seasons in a row now. Is there any hope for 2015? At what point does this team return to respectability?
****Off-season trades have added some depth to the organization, with acquisitions of prospects like Tom Windle, Ben Lively, and Zach Eflin. Are you satisfied with the returns the Phillies have received as they work to rebuild?
****What's your take on Maikel Franco? Is he ready?
****Can Ken Giles close?
****True or False: 2014 first-round pick Aaron Nola will make at least five major league starts in 2015.
****As always, feel free to discuss sleepers, under-rated, and over-rated prospects who hold your interest.
