Philadelphia Phillies Tickets – Eastern Stars
Latch on to Philadelphia Phillies tickets and see why this National League powerhouse is showing the rest of the MLB how to do things. The Philadelphia Phillies are coming off of another monster season in 2014, having fallen just short of their third straight trip to the World Series. Philadelphia won 97 games last season and advanced all the way to the NLCS before losing to the San Francisco Giants in a memorable series. Now the 2014 MBL season is getting underway and the Phillies are coming back with only one goal, another World Series. And in the 2014 MLB season, Philadelphia Phillies tickets will get you in to see Cliff Lee, one of the most dominating pitchers in Major League Baseball.
You read that right. Despite a huge contract offer from the New York Yankees, Cliff Lee picked the Philadelphia Phillies as his new team, based on the belief that this is the best organization in baseball. Lee is fresh off an appearance with the Texas Rangers, posting an undefeated playoff record. He joins the already potent pitching staff of Cy Young winner Roy Halladay, Cole Hamels, and Roy Oswalt, giving Phillies ticket holders one of the best pitching rotations in baseball.
Jimmy Rollins appears to have a lock on the leadoff spot, though his numbers were down in 2010. Still, Rollins is steady and his experience at the top of the lineup gives the Phillies an edge. Backing Rollins up at the #2 spot is Placido Polanco, who carries a .303 batting average over his career. Chase Utley, the star second baseman, now has five All Star appearances under his belt at #3. Cleanup man Ryan Howard can be depended on to get things done. He hasn’t fallen below 30 home runs in over five years and has collected over 100 RBI in each of those seasons. From there the Phillies lineup could change from last season as Jason Werth needs to be replaced. Shane Victorino is a likely candidate, as is Raul Ibinez, who knocked in 83 RBI in 2010.
Picking Phillies Tickets
The Philadelphia Phillies draw one of the biggest crowds in baseball, falling behind only to the Yankees. To catch great games in Citizens Bank Park, be sure to get your Phillies tickets to any and all NL East games where the action will be hottest. That means targeting Phillies tickets when the Atlanta Braves, Florida Marlins or New York Mets come to town. But that not all. The Phillies will be in playoff contention all season, so those big games against the Cardinals and Brewers, along with the San Francisco Giants and the Colorado Rockies, could all come into play for the postseason. But who are kidding? Any day in Citizens Bank Park with Philadelphia Phillies tickets is a good day.
