The Philadelphia Phillies are the oldest continuous, one-name, one-city franchise in all of professional American sports, dating all the way back to 1883. They are one of two remaining charter members of the National League. The franchise has two World Series titles, 11 division titles and seven NL pennants but didn’t win its first championship until 1980, 77 years after the first modern World Series was played in 1903.
Once a dominant team, the Phillies have returned to being a basement dweller in recent years. Fans and gamblers will to either find underdog value in them or wait until they rise once more.

Philadelphia Phillies Record
The Phillies had to wait until 1980 before winning their first World Series. Their 77 season drought is the longest of any team in the majors for the first half of the 20th century. But since that win, the Phillies have been a much better team and made four more World Series appearances, winning it all again in 2008. They won the NL East four straight seasons from 2007 to 2011 but have yet to win it again.
The Phillies have the second most division titles with 11 and from 2001 to 2011 finished no worse than third. They were the division’s kings for a substantial period in the late 2000s and early 2010s but have since regressed and finished last in recent years. In 2015, the Phillies finished dead last in the division and in the majors and won only 39.5 percent of their division games.
The best asset for the Phillies right now is the future. The Phillies won’t be contending or anything close to it in the next year or so but what they have are a nice core of promising cornerstones like Maikel Franco, Aaron Nola and Jerad Eickhoff. They also have more prospects waiting in the wings like J.P. Crawford. They signed a few serviceable free agents to fill in roster holes but they are simply rentals at this point.
Best case scenario for the Phillies is for their young talent to show immediate progress and inspire both fans and management that the rebuilding process won’t last much longer. The Phillies are likely to again finish in the bottom two of the division but if they overachieve like other rebuilding teams have done in the past, they may just come close to a winning record. Or better.
