Offseason

Regular season

Steve Carlton, the highest paid pitcher in the game at $165,000, never recovered from a spring training illness and went 13-20. Pitchers Jim Lonborg and Ken Brett, both obtained in a trade with the Milwaukee Brewers, won 13 games each, as did Wayne Twitchell, whose 2.50 ERA was third in the league. Left fielder Greg Luzinski led the team with 29 home runs, 97 RBIs, and 76 runs, and hit .285. In his rookie season, Mike Schmidt hit just .196 and struck out 136 times in 367 at-bats.
