Chase Utley played his normally tough game all year this season, some had worried his career was over but it didn't look that way this year
The Phillies season was not anything to get excited about, they finished last in the NL East for the first time since 2000, and really never got off the ground from the start of the season.
Here’s some of the player stats that was the 2014 season by the team:
Top player in 2014 (as measured by Wins Above Replacement player stat):
Cole Hamels 6.9
In 2013, this honor went to Cliff Lee who had a 7.5 score in that measurement
