Strikeouts for Phillies pitchers during Monday’s 6-5 win over Cardinals

With the major moves by the Flyers in late June/early July and the Eagles and Phillies in the last week of July, our Top 10 list examines the impact players acquired by Philly’s four major sports teams (well, three of them anyway) during the past year:

10. Michael Martinez Wouldn’t have made this list two months ago, but this Rule 5 draft pick has proven to be a valuable and versatile Phillie

9. Brayden Schenn Being called the best player not in NHL is a lot of pressure for (soon-to-be) 20-year-old center

8. Cullen Jenkins Fills gap at defensive tackle, replacing disappointing Brodrick Bunkley

7. Jason Babin Ex-Eagle castoff returns for big money to improve Eagles’ anemic pass rush

6. Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie Ranked higher on this list until Eagles signed Asomugha

5. Jaromir Jagr If Jagr were younger, he would be at top of this list

4. Hunter Pence Final piece of championship puzzle?

3. Nnamdi Asomugha Shutdown cornerback being counted upon to stabilize Eagles’ porous pass defense

2. Cliff Lee Brought back to put Phillies over the top in their pursuit of World Series title

1. Ilya Bryzgalov Being asked to end 20 years of revolving goalies and help end Flyers’ 36-year Stanley Cup drought
