8) Ed Delahanty

How can you not have a man who hit over .400 three times in the top 10? You simply can’t! Delahanty spent 13 seasons with the Phillies’ organization, throwing up ridiculous numbers in just about every one of them. “Big Ed” hit .348 with the Phils and posted an OPS of .922. He led the league in doubles, home runs, RBI, on-base percentage, slugging percentage, OPS, and total bases multiple times, as well as hits, triples, and batting average at least once.

At one point or another, he led the league in nearly every pitching category ever created, in the end, Alexander doesn’t get the credit he deserves from a lot of people.

6) Jimmy Rollins

Rollins won the National League MVP Award in 2007 and is a three-time All-Star. He narrowly missed out on adding the Rookie of the Year Award to his collection. Rollins was the spark that the Phillies so badly needed. Rollins hit 382 Home Runs as a Phillie and drove in almost 1200 RBIs.
