Eight years ago, Bill James produced his book on win shares. In that book, he listed each franchise's top 25 players by that statistic. In the ensuing period, the Phillies have had a run of success, finishing above .500 nearly every season and winning back to back division titles for only the second time in franchise history. With the club now producing several franchise players, I thought it might be worth updating the list.

 

1. Mike Schmidt (467)

2. Ed Delahanty (365)

3. Richie Ashburn (289)

4. Robin Roberts (277)

5. Steve Carlton (276)

6. Sherry Magee (274)

7. Bobby Abreu (247)

8. Pete Alexander (238)

9. Roy Thomas (233)

10. Del Ennis (215)

11. Dick Allen (211)

12. Johnny Callison (209)

t-13. Gavvy Cravath (188)

t-13. Chuck Klein (188)

t-15. Jimmy Rollins (184)

t-15. Greg Luzinski (184)

17. Willie Jones (179)

18. John Titus (177)

19. Cy Williams (176)

20. Sam Thompson (166)

21. Billy Hamilton (165)

22. Pat Burrell (163)

t-23. Von Hayes (158)

t-23. Fred Luderus (158)

25. Darren Daulton (154)

 

Chase Utley currently has 126 win shares. He is signed through 2013, and if he maintains his current pace he could begin to challenge that top six. Ryan Howard has 94 win shares. No one else on the team is currently within striking distance. Rollins is under contract through 2011. Again, he could end up with about 260 win shares at the end of his deal.
