Phillies Spring Training & The 2018 Season (PST Show #249)

Phillies spring training is here, and this week we’ll be looking at a bunch of storylines as we get ready for the 2018 season. Phillies beat writer for The Morning Call, Stephen Gross (@Stephen_Gross23), joined us for an in-depth discussion about what we can expect from the Phillies during this upcoming season.
But first, on the Brief News & Views segment:
1. Flyers Talk: Lindblom is recalled and the Flyers have a new goalie. (5:35)
2. Mike Groh and Duce Staley get new job titles with the Eagles. (15:45)
3. The status of the Sixers after the All-Star break. (23:15)
4. Reactions to our Twitter poll on which Phillie we’re looking to see have a bounce back year. (31:10)
Then we get into our Up or Down segment where we briefly analyze Philly sports figures to determine if their needle is moving up or down. (37:10)
What we’re throwing down on the Table this week is an interview with Stephen Gross from The Morning Call. We first dove into why many in the Phillies organization and fans of the team are so optimistic about this upcoming season. There are certain expectations for Maikel Franco as he looks to rebound from a steady decline over these past couple of seasons, which we get into. Also, how will the starting pitching rotation and bullpen contribute to the long-term success of the team this season? What will Carlos Santana’s impact be on and off the field? We get into all of these topics and much more on the Table this week! (44:35)
