Continuing our You’re the GM! series of team discussions, we move down the National League Eastern Division list and tackle the Philadelphia Phillies.
***You woke up today and found yourself running the Philadelphia Phillies. You inherit a 76-73 team, 6.5 games behind the Atlanta Braves, with good progress this year in the rebuilding project.
***What are the next steps? Is it too much to expect a charge to the top of the division in 2019?
***Which young players do you fully commit to? How much hope do you have for J.P. Crawford and Scott Kingery at this point?
***What are your current impressions of manager Gabe Kapler? How secure is his job?
***Are you happy with the farm system? What changes, if any, would you make?
