The good news for the Phillies in this season of so much bad is that the minor-league system has had a renaissance of sorts. "I think we had a good year in the minor leagues," said Joe Jordan, the Phillies' first-year director of player development. "There were a lot of good stories and some struggles along the way, but what I see as the most successful part is that we had a lot of good arms that stayed healthy and got their innings.
