The Philadelphia Phillies went down as the biggest winner of the Winter Meetings. They improved their World Series stock as a result of their work.
The Phillies kicked things off by signing shortstop Trea Turner to a massive deal, before further solidifying their pitching staff by stealing Taijuan Walker away from their rival in the New York Mets and adding a strong left-handed reliever in Matt Strahm.
The addition of Turner could be the one that helps push the Phillies over the edge. He is one of the most talented players in the MLB, and pairing him up with his old friend in Bryce Harper to lead Philadelphia’s lineup is a scary thought.
The Phillies were already strong, and it doesn’t look like they will be slowing down anytime soon after their work at the 2022 MLB Winter Meetings.
