It's a fun time to be a Philadelphia sports fan.

The Eagles are the best team in the NFL--by a significant margin. The Sixers have one of the most exciting young teams in the NBA. The Flyers have finally committed to a youth movement.

Now it's the Phillies turn to explode onto the scene.

With a new manager, Gabe Kapler, and a young roster that showed life in the second half, the Phillies could be a good offseason from relevance in the National League.

According to one MLB insider, that's about to commence--with general manager Matt Klentak ready to spend big and act like an executive of a big-market franchise.
