Arizona Diamondbacks

This D-backs team is Almost an Exact Replica of the 2022 Phillies

The 2022 Phillies was one of the most exciting teams to watch in a long time. They were filled with talent on both sides. They were an afterthought because they finished 3rd in their conference, and when they got to Citizen’s Bank Park, the atmosphere was absolutely electric, and they fed off of that.

The 2022 Phillies used that to advance all the way to the World Series as a six-seed after clinching the wild card birth in the final series of the season. 

Sound familiar? 

The 2023 Diamondbacks are doing the exact same thing. They snuck into the playoffs as a six-seed in the season’s final series. They have a talented core of hitters, with stars including Corbin Carroll, Christian Walker, Gabriel Moreno, and Ketel Marte. Their pitching staff has been fantastic, with two aces leading their staff, Zac Gallen and Merrill Kelly. And even though we only got to see Chase Field once, it was rocking, and the D-backs did seem to feed off it. 

I’m not the only one to think that, either. 

Phillies catcher JT Realmuto said that this team reminds him of their team last year. 

“The most daunting thing about them now is how much confidence they have now,” Realmuto said. 

Now, the D-backs still don’t have one thing the 2022 Phillies had: a trip to the World Series. 

They start that quest tomorrow versus the Phillies in the daunting Citizens Bank Park with Zac Gallen on the mound.
