What We Know: 10 Games In
There are no midseason awards at the 1/16th pole. No 10-game all-star lists or MVP and Cy Young Award frontrunners. No postseason locks or clear title favorites.

Now, whether that final work is a flawless Mona Lisa – or a disheveled, chaotic Guernica – remains to be seen for all parties, but some trends, patterns and tendencies for the Phillies certainly seem to be emerging. Here’s a bit of what we know after 10 games.
- Cole Hamels is Cole Hamels
- The offense is the offense
- Domonic Brown will be back sooner than later
