This Year is the Phillies Best Shot to Win a World Series

Coming into the 2024 season, the Phillies had two goals. First, to win a World Series. The other one was to start the season off strong. Over the past two seasons, the Phillies got off to awful starts. Both of the last two seasons people were questioning if they would even make the playoffs after the first two months of the season.


In the end both of 2022 and 2023 wound up to be incredible seasons for the Phillies. In 2022, they made the World Series but got beat by the Houston Astros. In 2024, they got to the National League Championship series but that ended up as a loss to the Arizona Diamondbacks.


This season has been completely different for the Phillies. They have gotten off to a tremendous start. As of right now, they are 44-19. They sit in first place in the National League East and leading it by 8 games, the Braves are in second place.


The Phillies also just got done with a series sweep over the first place Milwaukee Brewers. The talk around baseball has been that the Phillies are only beating bad teams and can’t ever beat any good teams. The Phillies just proved that they can indeed beat great teams.


One huge part of the Phillies success this season has been their pitching. They have four starters with a sub 3-ERA.


Ranger Suárez: 9-1, 1.70 ERA, 0.80 WHIP, 79 K Zack Wheeler: 7-3, 2.23 ERA, 0.97 WHIP, 91 K Cristopher Sánchez: 3-3, 2.71 ERA, 1.34 WHIP, 59 K

Aaron Nola: 7 (8?)-2, 2.77 ERA, 0.97 WHIP, 76 K


It’s not only their starters, the Phillies bullpen has been lockdown. Here are some notable top performers.


Matt Strahm: 3-1, 0.72 ERA, 25.0 IP, 0.76 WHIP, 35 K

Jeff Hoffman: 2-0, 0.98 ERA, 27.2 IP, 0.98 WHIP, 35 K

Orion Kerkering: 1-0, 1.27 ERA, 21.1 IP, 0.89 WHIP, 21 K

José Alvarado: 1-2, 2.96 ERA, 27.1 IP, 1.02 WHIP, 29 K

José Ruiz: 1-0, 2.08 ERA, 13.0 IP, 1.08 WHIP, 14 K


The Phillies offense has also been incredible. They are getting it done throughout the whole entire order. They are getting production from their superstars but the thing that stands out is they are also getting a ton of production from the bottom of their order and their bench. Everyone on the Phillies offense is stepping up.


With that all said, the Phillies have a serious shot at finishing the job and winning the World Series. They have the superstars, pitching, offense, and of course the vibes. The Phillies have the ability to keep up this incredible start.
