We’ve learned a lot from this 2016 Phillies roster: the pitching, batting and what direction they’re heading into the future. We brought Corinne Landrey from CrashburnAlley.com and a contributor at FanGraphs for some in-depth Phillies talk.
But first this week on the Brief News & Views segment:
1. Eagles news and notes: the o-line and Tulloch signing. (4:20)
2. Joel Embiid may be taking the court soon. (14:05)
3. The Flyers hire their first Director of Sports Science. (18:25)
4. TAKE IT or LEAVE IT: Chase Utley vs. Brian Dawkins. (23:15)
Our Listener Feedback this week focused on Dorial Green-Beckham’s impact on the Eagles offensive productivity, Philly sports players we don’t want injured and what Lane Johnson’s impending suspension means for the offense. (28:05)
Then what we’re throwing down on the Table is a fun and very honest interview with Corinne Landrey from Crashburn Alley and FanGraphs. We begin by discussing the 2016 Phillies pitching rotation, their productivity and if they’re part of the long-term rebuild. From there we go in-depth as it pertains to the outfield, Odubel Herrera and Maikel Franco. Corinne gives her assessment about manager Pete Mackanin’s leadership and much, much more. (40:35)
