From 2007-11, Clearwater, Fla., was the place to be for Philadelphia Phillies fans. With a dominant, improving team and a willing and aggressive front office, the franchise attracted fans in droves to watch their roster train for the upcoming season.

Those days are over.

On the heels of back-to-back non-winning seasons for the first time since 1999-2000, the Phillies head into the 2014 season at a crossroads: The roster is designed to win now, but a lack of talent permeates through the goal.

In order to create optimism and shock a suddenly depressed fanbase, the Phillies must surprise in Clearwater, stay healthy through March and arrive back in Philadelphia as a team poised to recapture their former glory. 

Can they do it?

Without further ado, here’s a spring training preview for the 2014 Philadelphia Phillies.
