Philadelphia Phillies (84.5 Wins)

The 80-win Phillies fell far short of postseason glory in 2018, but there is reason to believe their luck will change this year. For starters, Philadelphia has added a serious star power together with all the acquisitions of All-Star shortstop Jean Segura in the Mariners, and former NL MVP Andrew McCutchen from the Yankees. Both players are specialist hitters who add Philly’s lineup and a lot of pop. The team’s bullpen strengthened by signing free agent reliever David Robertson to a two-year thing. The former World Series champ was 8-3 with a 3.23 ERA last year with the Yankees, also held opponents to a minuscule .183 batting average. He should work wonders for a club that ranked 18th season in bullpen ERA. The club is not done dealing and wheeling just yet, although those three signings have made Philadelphia’s offseason a success. Philly is also in the thick of Bryce Harper and their Manny Machado sweepstakes. The franchise has gobs of money to spend and either player could account for an extra 10-12 wins.
