Phillies 2000-2020 All Double-Decade Team

As you all know, there are no sports going on due to the Coronavirus.
While sports have been on hold, I’ve been trying to find ways to pass the
time while also thinking of things to write articles about. This time right now was
supposed to be the time of the DeepPhly Podcast and articles about
what is going on with the Phillies. One of the things I keep seeing
around is these high school double decade teams from TedSilary.com. I
got to thinking, who were the best players on the Phillies in the last 20
years? Some of the names were obvious as im sure most of you know
the spots where I’m talking about. If anyone disagrees which I’m sure
someone will since theres always one, please feel free to comment on
the link and talk about it. We have nothing else better to do at this
time.
The rules I used:
8 Position Players
4 Bench Players
5 Starting Pitchers
5 Relief Pitchers
If you’re wondering, no I am not strictly using guys for my bench who
came off the bench during their playing careers. My bench will be more
of a “Honorable Mention” area. As I’m sure you know the Phillies
weren’t exactly entertaining in the early 2000’s and started to really
come on to be a competitive team in 2007, so most of the names
mentioned will be from 2007 and on.
So here it is, my rendition of the Phillies 2000-2020 All Double-Decade
