At The Yard podcast: Can Phillies spend their way past Braves and Nationals in 2020?

Can the Phillies realistically spend themselves into contention in 2019, or are the Braves and Nationals set up too solidly for years to come? Ricky Bottalico and Corey Seidman break it down.

• Offseason priorities, in order.

• Does it even make sense to spend huge again this offseason if the Braves and Nats will still be so much better?

• How many 2019 Phillies actually had good years?

• Rhys Hoskins was Adam Dunn this year and that's not good enough.

• Should a Hoskins trade be explored even if Phillies are selling low?

• Free-agent relief market is UGLY

• What were the reasons for the Phillies' mediocre performance against the NL's worst teams?

• What managerial qualities should Phillies prioritize if they move on from Kapler?

• Has Zach Eflin solidified a rotation spot for next season?
