I am now working on the Los Angeles Angels prospect list, such as it is. The next team in line is the Philadelphia Phillies, to be followed by the Texas Rangers, Cincinnati Reds, Baltimore Orioles, Arizona Diamondbacks, Detroit Tigers, and the Washington Nationals.

Use this thread to discuss the Philadelphia Phillies farm system. Potential points for discussion can include, but are certainly not limited to,

***What is your take on the early results of the rebuilding job conducted by Andy MacPhail and new GM Matt Klentak?

***The Phillies finished 63-99 in 2015. Can they get to 75 wins in 2016? What is a realistic expectation?

***Personally I don't think Maikel Franco was over his head at all hitting .280/.343/.497 in his debut. Agree or disagree? Why or why not?

***What about Odubel Herrera? Can he go from Rule 5 success story to permanent lineup mainstay?

***Your read on Aaron Altherr? Has he converted those marvelous tools into skills?

***Does Aaron Nola get better?

***As always, feel free to discuss your sleeper prospects or the organization in general.
