This was a mediocre team.  The evidence is above.  Near the middle of the pack in nearly every statistical category, including wins. 

The Phillies pitching staff was once again the best at not walking batters in ratio to striking them out.  Free passes are not something the pitchers give up easily.

Notice the defense took a major turn for the worse.  Over that past 5 NL East championships the Phillies were the best fundamentally sound team defensively.

As much as people love Davy Lopes, is evident the Phillies still swipe bags at an amazingly high success rate.

Not enough "good at bats" on this team.  They hack with wreckless abandon, don't take walks, but do make contact...weak contact that unfortunately produces a lot of outs.

From The Zo Zone:
"Who knew Rollins was 20 percent of this team’s problems?

Listen, I understand Rollins can be frustrating. He doesn’t always hustle, and there’s simply no excuse for it. He popped out in the infield 42 times this season to lead the big leagues. That is painful to watch. He also hit just .250 with a .316 on-base percentage, his lowest OBP since 2009 (.296).

But let’s put Rollins’ season into perspective, shall we?

Here is how he ranked among all shortstops in Major League Baseball:

•Third in WAR (5.0).
•Fourth out of 21 qualifying shortstops with a .429 slugging percentage.
•First in runs (102).
•Second in home runs (23).
•Second in doubles (33) and walks (68).
•Fourth in RBIs (68).
•Tied for fifth in triples (5).
•Sixth with a .746 OPS.
Not bad."

Spot on. J-Roll pisses me off at times, but he's still one of the top SS in the game.
