Baseball season is over, but that doesn’t mean we can’t talk about the Philadelphia Phillies as we debate Bryce Harper, his contract, the Joe Girardi hire, and what the future holds during this offseason. We know where the team can improve, but will they be able to do it over the next few months? This week, Dan Clark from TBLDaily.com joined us to discuss the future of this Phillies team. It’s a great interview you won’t want to miss.
But first, we dove into some listener feedback about the Washington Nationals and their fanbase. (approx. 6:20)
We then discussed how Kevin Hayes has been an excellent free agent signing for the Philadelphia Flyers thus far and the talent he has brought to the team. (approx. 9:50)
From there, we talked about the Eagles not making any big moves before the trade deadline. However, they did trade for pass rusher Genard Avery, which was an interesting acquisition based on his “value”. Plus, we gave our scoring predictions for this week’s Bears vs. Eagles game. (approx. 15:40)
As the Sixers remain undefeated, we got into how the team needs to get more out of Tobias Harris moving forward. (approx. 25:40)
This week on the Highbrow Segment, once again, we discussed how the NCAA made a surprise announcement this week about how they are looking at implementing new regulations that will allow college athletes to be paid and receive endorsements in the future. (approx. 31:00)
Then on our Lowbrow Segment, we gave one question we would ask any former professional athlete where the question would not deal with anything sports related. (approx. 37:00)
What we’re throwing down on the Table this week is an in-depth interview with sports writer Dan Clark about the coming offseason for the Phillies. We first discussed his poking and jabbing at the Phillies fanbase for the Bryce Harper contract, and how he feels Harper was overpaid. From there, we dove into the Joe Girardi hire and what it means for the club house in the future. Will the Phillies be able to rebound in 2020 from a disappointing 2019 season? How do they begin building a team for the future in the trenches? All of this and much more this week on the Table! (approx. 46:10)
