2016 isn't business as usual that's been happening with the Phillies baseball team for the past several years. This team was in a serious decline and to do inactivity on the part of Ruben Amaro Jr. to fix it, it remained broken for 2015.
So bad, that Ryne Sandberg couldn't stay around anymore with the type of actions that were coming from the upper Phillies management. Yes, there really isn't a good reason for a baseball manager to quit do to losing, but it was getting so embarrassing, something had to break.
There is a time for rebuilding, but that hasn't really started happening until the new Phillies management was put into place with this team. There has been a lot of moves to make this team better from a brand new prospective.
Are the Phillies going to go out there and win the NL East in 2016? I wouldn't go that far in saying that, but we are going to be in a much better position than last year. Look for a much better finish from this team in the new year.
So Happy New Year to the readers of the blog, I'd like to invite you to listen in to our podcast as well called Phillies Talk, you can find it right here on the website or on iTunes or Stitcher Radio.
