Ryne Sandberg has his 21st win as Phillies manager.
Sandberg wanted Larry Bowa as his bench coach.
He got him.
The Phillies wanted to keep their hitting-coach tandem of head man Steve Henderson and assistant Wally Joyner in place for 2014, but Joyner declined an invitation to return.
It was not a coincidence that Cody Asche ended up with a locker right next to Chase Utley in the Phillies’ clubhouse when he came to the majors in July.
Numbers don't lie and the Phillies' numbers for 2013 were the worst we have seen with this club since it started calling Citizens Bank Park home.
