Today is a great day for all Phillies Phans, today is the day we phinally get to look to the phuture of the franchise and once again have true hope that the Phightin Phils will return to glory once again soon.
In 2015, the Phillies phinally moved from the past and looked to the phuture by training away the rest of the championship but two and restocked the pharm system with high valued prospects to drive the Phillies from the MLB cellar to respectability and contention and high hopes for a third Championship in Phillies history.
After last year's miserable season, one that had zero excitement, we now have something to look phorward to. We will contend this year....probably not. Will it be exciting to watch our new younger core...no doubt. As a phan, can we not be excited for a phull season, barring injury, of our everyday players Maikel Franco, Peter Bourjos, Aaron Altherr and Odubel Herrera and our young pitching staff of lead by Aaron Nola, Jeremy Hellickson, Adam Morgan and Jerad Eickhoff. Plus there is a lot of potential in the Pharm system with players like J.P. Crawford, Nick Williams, Roman Quinn and Jorge Alfaro.
The Phillies might not win a lot of games in 2016, but they will be 100% more phun to watch than the 2015 product. It will be exciting to watch the Phillies phuture unfolding before our eyes. It will be phun to have to have hope and dreams of a championship again. It will be phun to watch these young players play with a phire we haven't seen since we won in 2008. This team will play with hunger, this team will play with excitement, this team will be PHUN!
The 2016 team motto should be having Phun at the ballpark again!
Enjoy the 2016 season, I know I will.
Happy Phirst Day of Spring Training Phans!
