The history of the Philadelphia Phillies is a long and complicated one. As it seems, when they weren’t under poor management, they had poor players, and the two combined have made for a difficult 130 years, for the most part.

As one of the oldest teams in the league (beginning in 1883), the Philadelphia Phillies hold the undesired distinction of being the professional American sports team who have lost the most games in history. They appeared in the 1915 World Series where they lost to the Red Sox, then they lost again – to the Yankees – in 1950. It would be yet another 20 years before history would change for the City of Brotherly Love.

Complete quiet ruled the roster of the Phillies until the early 1970s when a young pitcher named Steve Carlton and a young slugger named Mike Schmidt took over and started winning. They helped carry the team to 6 post-season appearances in 8 seasons, finally winning the pennant against the Kansas City Royals in 1980. Bob Boone, Tim McCarver, Dave Rader, Larry Bowa, Pete Rose and Greg Luzinski were also key players in that dynasty era.

After another appearance in the World Series in 1993, they would once again rise to the top of the league finishing first or second in their division every year from 2004 through 2011, appearing in the post-season five times in those eight seasons. They won the World Series in 2008 against the Tampa Bay Rays, and challenged the field but haven’t won another pennant. They have since struggled with losing seasons since 2012 and have finished on the bottom of their division both of the last two seasons.

It’s time for another Phillies season!
