Philadelphia Phillies Franchise History:
The Philadelphia Phillies were established in 1883 and are the oldest continuous one name and one city franchise in American professional sport. Although the Phillies have been extremely successful in recent years for much of their history they struggled. It took the Philadelphia Phillies seventy-year years to win their first World Series Championship (the fourth longest drought in Major League Baseball history) after winning just one game in their previous two visits to the World Series. The franchise has maintained this record of winning one World Championship in every three visits to the World Series; losing in 1983 and 1993 before sweeping the Tampa Bay Rays to win the 2009 World Series. In recent seasons the Phillies have dominated the National League East Division winning five straight titles from 2007 to 2011. Biggest of their extended periods of poor performance the Phillies have lost more games than any other franchise in the history of American professional sport.
Philadelphia Phillies Offensive Star: Jimmy Rollins
Jimmy Rollins was drafted by the Philadelphia Phillies in the second round of the 1996 MLB draft. Rollins impressed in the minor leagues and made his Major League Baseball debut in 2001. Rollins had a strong rookie year and finished the season with a league high forty-six stolen bases. The shortstop has maintained his position as the premier base stealer in Baseball until 2009; stealing at least twenty bases every season from 2001 to 2009. Rollins had a standout season in 2007 winning the Silver Slugger, Golden Glove and National League MVP awards. In recent seasons Rollins has developed into a more complete player at thirty-four years of age is still the most consistent hitter on the Phillies roster and will play a key role as they aim to reclaim their divisional title.
Philadelphia Phillies Defensive Star: Cole Hamels
Johnny Cueto was signed by the Cincinnati Reds as an undrafted free agent in 2005. After three excellent seasons in the minor leagues he made his debut in the Majors but generally struggled for consistency in his first two seasons. He improved in 2010 and the following season had a breakout year becoming one of the leading pitchers in the National League. Cueto is now considered one of the elite starting pitchers in the league and will be a key member of the Reds push for back to back division titles.
Philadelphia Phillies Manager: Charlie Manuel
Charlie Manuel began his managerial career in the minor leagues before joining the Cleveland Indians as a coach and was named manager in 2000. Manuel led the franchise to the American League Central Division Title in 2001 but was fired in 2002 after a contract dispute. He joined the Philadelphia Phillies in 2002 and was named manager in 2004. Manuel has led the Phillies to great success with the franchise winning five division titles, two National League Pennants and a World Series Championship since he took over as manager. At sixty-nine years of age Manuel may not have many years left at the Phillies but would dearly love to win another World Series Championship.
