CLEARWATER, Fla. (AP) - From Cole Hamels to Ryan Howard to Charlie Manuel, the Philadelphia Phillies have different views on whether their window of opportunity to win another World Series is narrowing.
With a core of aging players, some of which are entering the final seasons of their contracts, it's a natural question. The Phillies are no longer the team to beat in the NL East after capturing five straight division titles, two pennants and one World Series title between 2007-11. Injuries to star players and overall inconsistency contributed to an 81-81 finish last year.
Maybe their time is running out, but that depends on who you ask.
